I’m no exception to the idea of “finding ways to make it in life,” like so many people I’m navigating this world by doing the best I can. As a family man, I try to be an exceptional role model for my children and a husband my wife feels proud to stand next with. I will admit that I don’t have many friends, but the few I have, I’m grateful for and try my best to be a good friend to them.
I also have to say that my wife is right, I’m a guy with a lot of hobbies (some can be expensive). I’ve always enjoyed weightlifting, specifically power-lifting; every so many years I’ll have months in which I will really dedicate myself to it until life comes knocking and forces me to take another break. Podcasting or having a YouTube show is another one of my passions. I won’t lie, I love to talk about what happens around us. There is something special when you can get someone talking about topics that light their eyes (sometimes, with red veins of anger). Lately, my wife and I have really gotten into gardening, we call ourselves “homesteaders or farmers in training” as we hope to have our own piece of land one day.
As for my personal development, I also know that I’m always interested in expanding my knowledge. In 2013 I embarked on the crazy journey that is entrepreneurship by opening a company that took me to Oklahoma, Mexico, and to many other places. Primarily due to the COVID pandemic that struck in 2020, my company did not make it, and lucky I had been focusing on adopting frontend development, at first it started as a need to figure things out for my business. However, now I’ve decided to really dig my heels into becoming a developer (full stack one day I hope), and even enrolled back into school so that I can earn my bachelor’s in Computer Science.

PAST dev EXPERIENCE
While I’ve been investing hundreds of hours in the past few years to learning everything development, specifically frontend, I still feel like the new kid on the block when I speak with other developers. Nonetheless, I have a few projects and work experience under my belt that I’m proud to share.
2021 – Current
Currently, I’m the guy designing and producing social media assets/projects and the further development for the company website, including the eCommerce side of things.

2014 – 2021
As the owner, you wear a lot of hats, and the need to have a strong online presence via a website and even an app drove me to dedicate countless hours to development.
2017 – 2020
While I did not have a lot of creative freedom or access to “real” development (I didn’t get an official title), I was directly responsible for designing and developing landing pages, email templates, and even working with a platform called Zingtree, all using HTML, CSS, and JS.
