I was raised in Isabela, Puerto Rico and I'm currently living in the Washinton, DC Metro Area. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez and a Master's Degree in Software Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. Presently I work as a software engineer in the healthcare sector.
