I spent over 15 years working as a Software Engineer in a variety of projects for Advertising Agencies, Production Companies, and developing experiments. In the past five years, I've been managing and focusing my efforts on the art of helping people improve themselves and help companies to achieve their goals. Here's a little bit about my interests around technology and beyond.
Frontend development is the core of my technical knowledge and page optimization techniques are a passion that I take with me when writing and reviewing code. Even though currently, coding is not my main task, I still love it and do my best to be in touch with codebases to keep myself as sharp and up-to-date as possible.
One of my main passions is the R&D process. I love planning and exploring problems to find creative solutions. From physical installations, mobile apps, all the way to more abstract issues, over the years I orchestrated multiple experiences that later became real-life/real-use products.
When I first started working, organizational structure for web development was rudimentary, along the way I found some great mentors who guided me. During this learning process, I developed the desire to help other people to achieve their full potential by understanding what motivates them and helping them to identify what their strengths and opportunities are.
I have a passion for maps, the transformation of complex ideas into a simple, easy to read, transcription of that reality amazes me. That, of course, caused me to explore many different projects along my career using OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, and other APIs, techniques, and services. I also successfully completed the Maps and the Geospatial Revolution course.
As a volunteer member of the Los Angeles Mayor's Crisis Response Team and Disney Care Team, my job is to respond to traumatic incidents providing immediate on-scene crisis intervention and act as a liaison between victims, survivors, and emergency personnel. Referrals are also given to victims and their families affected by death, violent crimes, or traumatic incidents.
I am a Crisis Counselor at the Crisis Text Line since 2016 when I went through intensive training focusing on proper contact techniques for dealing with emotional crises, including mental disorders and traumatic experiences helping guide texters from an acute crisis to calm.
In my first year at Disney, I delivered two significant projects - TLS Everywhere and an effort to improve page speed. My role was the orchestration of the multiple teams (Product, Engineering, TechOps, DevOps, Stakeholders, etc.).
I also took part in extra-curricular activities volunteering on Diversity, Emergency, and Crisis Programs.
I managed a multidisciplinary team, and cross-team relations, including conflict resolutions, hiring, resourcing, personal, and technical development aligning each team member’s goal with the company’s goal.
The hard work of our team helped the company to become a Google and DoubleClick Partner, and deliver multiple award-winning projects.
Full Stack Engineer and Tech Lead on projects for clients including McDonald’s and Unilever, Building games, websites, Youtube Brand Channel, and doing research.
