Hi and welcome to my blog!

I am a Software Development Engineer working for Amazon on the Amazon Go and Amazon Books team. Currently, I live in Seattle with my wife, Elisa, and my daughter, Amalia. My interests are in Web technologies, Javascript, Python, Networking, AWS, Docker, and Linux.

Before joining Amazon, I was in New York City pursuing my Master’s degree in Computer Science at Columbia University. Prior to that, I worked at Alegra, a startup in Colombia to help small and medium-sized companies with their accounting and bookkeeping.

I am also a water skier and did it competitively for a while.

The purpose of this blog is to publish my notes about stuff that I find interesting or about something new that I learned. Hopefully, I’ll look back in a few years and will see how much I’ve learned.
