Statement of Interest

Learn, architect, deploy, research, about OpenStack and its technological interactions.


I was born in a little town in Chile called Linares and I moved to Mexico at 19 years old to start continue my Computer Science Engineering degree (after getting expelled from a University in Chile) and a master's degree in computer science nearly 10 years later, mainly because I got bored with people talking about technological concepts without knowing on what are nowadays cutting edge platforms build on, and I wanted to work more on research and less explaining.

In my entire professional career, I've worked as a freelancer, implementation engineer, and support engineer, for larger to smaller companies, most of them located in LATAM: Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, and Mexico. As a result, today I dedicate my time to helping companies healthy disengage away from legacy architecture applications and solutions to fully distributed ones with Open Source technologies.
