I think as a person We have to live to our full potential, in the different areas of our lives, soul, mind, body, every day of my life I try to reach the best version of me, as a professional, person, husband and human being.
I'm a passionate Software Developer living in Costa Rica. It was my dream since I was a little boy to become involved in the software field I used to love playing videogames and I was thrilled and curious about how video games were built.
I knew from an early stage that I was going to become a Software Engineer, while I was still in school, I loved to read computers magazines and everything I could find about software.
I started my career as a developer in 2008 after I graduated from college, my first job was very challenging from the beginning since I was in charge of developing an entire Website with the only experience I had in college, it was very challenging but very rewarding at the same time when I completed the task.
As a software developer, I've worked for a wide variety of global clients, I have a vast array of knowledge in many different front-end and back-end languages, responsive frameworks, databases, mobile development, and best code practices, I have more than 10 years of experience in Web Development.
God has blessed me to have two beautiful women in my life, my 7-year-old daughter, Jimena and my lovely wife Ana. I love living in Costa Rica, It's a beautiful country full of nature, peaceful, the people are nice here, and last but not least it has amazing beaches. I try to visit nature often as a relaxation method and keep away from daily stress
I'm OBSESSED to learn and improve every day my hard/soft skills since I know that the Development field is in rapid and constant change, so it's my duty as a developer to keep always updated with the latest technologies.
