Who am I

A technology and sports lover, part of professional teams in both fields from a young age. Currently a full-stack Node developer, having in mind to be part of great engineering software development someday soon.

My path


Anima is an educational organization and high school located in the downtown of Montevideo, Uruguay. It's one of the very few institution that offer the 'dual vocational training’ (work in a real company as you study).
