Professional Bio

Since I had my very first computer, I was willing to learn how the computer works and makes the amazing things that help people. Later I discovered that behind those spectacular programs, there are people who use nothing but their imaginations to build the applications and programs that we use. Since then, I've been meticulously learning different kinds of programming languages and different ways to solve people's problems through technology. This passion led me to teach my kids how to build video games and be builders of technology instead of just consumers. Lately, I've been fascinated by the use cases that Machine Learning and AI can be applied to. I think that it's the future and the next big step of technology; there's a lot of value in the data that we generate on our apps and computers that could help to discover insights useful for solving a large number of society's problems.
