Somerset, NJ, US



Born in Brooklyn but raised in Colombia until moving back to the States at the age of 18. I consider myself of someone who is consistently growing and takes the time to continue learning. I find that many times, my professional growth is based on what I study, both directly and indirectly related to work. In addition, I am the type of person who meets challenges head-on rather than sweeping them under the rug and hoping they go away. 

In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer, learning about new technologies and spending time with family and friends.
