Autobiography

I was born in Puerto Rico in May 2, 2002 to a secretary mother and adventurer father. I always felt out of place throughout school, but nevertheless had a very happy childhood. Infact, I was the class clown throughout elementary!

I began programming at the age of 15, building small games from old hardware and simple apps to make life a bit better. I taught myself the frontend ecosystem of HTML/CSS/JS, to JavaScript libraries, to frameworks, to backend development, database engineering, mobile development, fullstack development, product development, customer development, etc.

I also have a love for music, having taught myself the guitar, piano and singing.

I am currently living in Florida attending high school and learning about life;
