About

In 2005, one of the first websites that I built contributed to change the immigration fate of one of my friends in college.
Since then, I have been exploring the technology to bring people together and help organizations. Along the way,
I had the chance to work on many initiatives and contexts with great teams in Europe, Asia, and North America.
