Hello, there. I’m a Venezuelan-American web developer & engineering leader based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, right in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, on Shoshone-Bannock, Eastern Shoshone, and Cheyenne land. I’ve been building websites for over 20 years, and currently I’m an engineering manager at Stitch Fix, leading a team of engineers working on Stitch Fix Freestyle.
Previously, I was a senior engineering manager at Vox Media, where I led multiple 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 and Fanboys.
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.
Outside of work, I enjoy wildlife & landscape photography, spending time with my spouse and our three rambunctious cats, competing in the occasional race, and heading into the mountains as often as possible.
