Professional Bio


After working as an assistant teacher at my alma mater and realizing that I wasn't getting the experience I was looking for, I decided to learn Ruby and become a software developer. Every day as a programmer brings new excitement and challenges, and I love materializing my thoughts into chunks of code. Even after trying different technologies like Elixir and Python, my favorite technology to this day is Ruby: it's easy to learn, has a wide community, and it's well documented and maintained. I believe in learning, persisting, and always being transparent. When I'm not coding, I enjoy reading books and watching films about history.
