Interests

Job

If you want to hire me, I'm interested to work in companies that offer modern technologies such as Node.js, Vue.js, Nuxt.js, React.js, etc. I am looking for a role that challenges me and where I can help designing solutions.

Travel

I love traveling, especially to cities. I love when a city is vibrant and full of diversity. It might not be a surprise that one of my favorite places on Earth is New York City.

Technology

I'm fascinated by technological advances which companies such as Tesla, SpaceX, Boston Dynamics make.

Startups & Companies

I have a big entrepreneurial and startup curiosity which is devided in two fields. On one hand, small companies which try to make it big such as Avena (Mexican-originated fitness app). On the other hand, I like following strategic moves and happenings in big players such as Facebook, Netflix, Spotify.

Coding

This is a classic cliché. After (or before) work, I enjoy some coding on the side. I am currently exploring Nuxt and diving deeping in the internal workings of Vue.js in order to be able to contribute to the projects.

Cinema & TV

I love almost any kind of movie, but I always prefer DC and Marvel movies. As of TV: I enjoy my sitcoms like F·R·I·E·N·D·S (all-time favorite), HIMYM, TBBT as well as superhero-themed shows (Flash, Arrow), dramas (Dexter, Breaking Bad, GoT), among others. (If you want to engange in lengthy conversations with me, these are the way to go.)
