About me

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.

A portrait of me, with Teddy, an orange tabby cat, sitting across my shoulders. I'm wearing a dark blue shirt and gold-rimmed glasses.
I wish I had a more professional-looking work photo, but this is exactly what Teddy & I look like when I’m working.

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.
