I am a pragmatic software engineer with 20+ years of experience, passionate about simplicity, operational and engineering excellence, DevOps, distributed systems and computer science. I am also a teacher and mentor at heart, which allows me to connect with software engineers, managers and tech product leaders of all levels of experience, helping them to grow, learn, and achieve their career goals.

I started coding in GW-BASIC with an 8086 when I was 13 years old (yes, I’m old, I’ve seen a lot). This initial experience made me realize that I wanted to stay around computers as much as I could. All this eventually led to college (Systems Engineering/Computer Science) which led to a long and fulfilling career as software developer engineer, teacher, and mentor.

My journey includes starting my own software engineering companies in Venezuela (and making a living of them for seven plus years), a five-year detour teaching Computer Science related courses at a notable Venezuelan university, and seven plus years at Amazon AWS as a Principal Engineer.

I had the privilege of being mentored by Mr. Demian for several months, and it was a game-changer for my career in software engineering. Mr. Demian understood my goals and provided spot-on advice to help me reach them. He kept me on track, offering constructive feedback on my tasks and projects, fostering continuous improvement. What stood out was his broad knowledge – not just in hard engineering topics but also in management and navigating office dynamics. His mentorship went beyond technical skills, giving me a well-rounded understanding of the professional landscape. Applying his guidance directly contributed to my career growth, resulting in well-deserved promotions. I'm grateful for the impactful mentorship from Mr. Demian, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a mentor who genuinely cares about your success.

From our first meeting, Demian has been very proactive in identifying both the weak spots and strengths in my skillset. He has been tremendously generous with his time and very respectful in providing feedback. I feel like I've made progress by leaps and bounds, and I'm excited about all the things I have yet to learn
