Hello, there. I’m a Venezuelan-American immigrant based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, right in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, on Shoshone-Bannock, Eastern Shoshone, and Cheyenne land. I live here with my spouse and our three rambunctious kittens, and we enjoy traveling and visiting national parks, historic sites, landmarks, and museums across the country.
I’ve been building websites for over 20 years, and currently I’m an engineering manager at Stitch Fix, where I’ve led multiple engineering and cross-functional teams, most recently the Checkout & Wardrobe team.
Previously, I was a senior engineering manager at Vox Media, where I led several teams, including the Editorial Tools team, building first-class editorial tools for journalists across the world; the Services team, bringing Chorus to newspapers such as the Chicago Sun-Times, Deseret News, and Minneapolis Star Tribune; the Revenue Platforms team, building better advertising tools & products; and the Performance team, making the sites as fast as possible. I was also a front-end engineer at The Verge, where among other things I did a complete responsive rebuild of the site, and worked on high-touch editorial features such as The Verge 50.
Before that, I worked as a front-end engineer at Piictu and DailyMe, and as an independent web developer for over a decade, with a brief, strange stint in the Venezuelan oil industry during that time.
Elsewhere on the Internet, I publish my photography at All-Encompassing Trip, and write about triathlon training & racing at Given to Tri.
