Self- employedDecember 2006 - Present

Quick facts:


1. Started programming at 8 years old, and got my first consulting gig at 17, for a Swiss company in Mexico City.


2. Before GitHub existed, I was doing web apps with Javascript, ASP, and SQL Server for the World Health Organization. 


3. When Obama was showing off his BlackBerry everywhere, I was on site, in Calgary, AB, programming a Blackberry app for a client there.


4. Once, a rock band hired me to develop the accompanying iPad app for their new single, a digital sound visualization in 3D done in C++.


This all happened in a 100% remote, consulting basis. I worked 6 years for a mobile services company in Peru, my app processing around 1 million SMS messages per day. I also lived in Vancouver, Paris and Amsterdam while working remotely.


I can help you with the following:


- Plan, design, budget and execute the technological solution, in order to fulfill the feature roadmap.

- Evaluate and decide on what technologies to use and for what.

- Decide when to buy ready made things, and when to build them anew.

- Design and implement a realistic, effective, communicable and sustainable work process for the tech area.

- Evaluate, hire and assign personnel, defining incentives for the tech department 

- Offer the technical perspective on the company's wide goals

- Give technical answers to the Management, the investors, the employees and the company’s clients.

- Establish QA systems for the software products, as well as defining the overall technical priorities.

- Participate in events with the public, investors or clients, when appropriate.


Oh, I can code as well in Javascript, SQL, C#, C++, Swift, Java, and other less popular things.

Self-employedDecember 2010 - November 2015

The 2nd brand I founded to provide consulting services. Originally I intended to develop mobile games, but after 2 failed attempts, I gathered all the technical know-how on mobile development and began offering consulting on these topic, eventually migrating to BlackBerry, and all the way to iOS. In the mean time, I had clients for mobile apps in Canada, USA, Mexico and France, among others. I also offered successfully professional development training on iOS in Spanish, featuring my particular view on developing business apps for the platform.
