I'm a strong believer that anyone with persistence, humility and resourcefulness can be a successful software engineer and have a happy, fulfilling career.

I started my career with three internships, the last two at Microsoft while finishing my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science at the University of Utah.

After starting full-time at Microsoft, I became a Software Engineer 2 within one year and a Senior Software Engineer two years later. I have been a Tech lead for several projects. I've contributed to and maintained multiple highly successful open source projects. During my time at Microsoft, I delivered several other successful projects for Microsoft and its partner companies. As a side note, had the opportunity of traveling to London, Paris, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Stockholm and multiple US cities as part of work with development teams of Microsoft partners.

In late 2021, I transitioned to Stripe as a Backend Senior Software Engineer (L3) as part of the LATAM team in 2021, focused on building out local payment methods for Latin American merchants.

I can help you understand what it takes to get yourself noticed and break into big tech, how to prepare yourself to crush your rounds of interviews and how to put yourself in the best position possible to negotiate a max offer or a promotion to that next level.

I've had some incredible mentors throughout my journey and look forward to helping you on yours.

I speak fluent Spanish
