I'm web and mobile developer, technology enthusiast and music lover. When an idea comes to my mind I don't stop until finish it. I love to create interactions between software and hardware worlds.

About Me

I have been programming professionally for more than 12 years being passionate by all the new technologies and standards. Started working for internet since it appeared for domestic usage on my country (~1996), creating and innovating with high quality products and never stopped. Worked on a lot projects, for many clients around the world.

In my background there are a lot of languages that I've used and then replaced for better alternatives, from C and Perl, to actually Python and Javascript. And always investigating new things to play with.

Worked on a few companies in Argentina, and also worked a lot remotely for different companies around the world: USA, England, Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, and Colombia.

Created from simple websites to huge web applications that included different technologies like: cloud computing, non-relational databases (noSQL), web services, responsive mobile website applications, complex user interfaces, authentication and application APIs.

Lately, I've started playing with native mobile development and currently working on my first iOS game.

I am proficient in many programming languages, environments, and operating systems, and can pick up new ones in the blink of an eye.
