I'm a self-taught musician passionate about web-development.
As a music composer I have developed a passion for creating. I got involved in the tech industry having the opportunity to be part of programing teams for over 5 years in 4 different markets around the world.
I began as a full stack developer in the back-office ecosystem at Konfio.mx, the biggest fin-tech in Mexico. I developed, implemented, and maintained a robust codebase that helped the company get to Series A investment.
I was later promoted to the product team where I designed for performance and modularity. I worked on improving the whole experience to be mobile-first and to rank 96 out of 100 in Google's speed and performance tests, taking the company's website to be 1st in the loans and credits search results and no. 1 in the SMB loans industry in Mexico.
During the early stages of the program, I taught full-stack web-development to 3 promotions empowering around 70 women. I built the course structure and methodologies now used in 2 Peru cities, Santiago de Chile, and Mexico City, achieving to empower a total of 400 students from which 75% get a development job and have a 3.0x increase in their income.

Communication skills: I'm a team player. I consider myself to be honest yet subtle when communicating problems.

Remote communication skills: I always attend telecommuting and I am very explicit about feature descriptions and how to test them
Work: I take ownership of my code. I will adjust my personal life to meet deadlines.
