Engineering Leader Lecturer Entrepreneur Speaker Free & Open Source advocate Foodie & Traveler


I am an Engineering Leader focused on empowering and supporting leaders and engineers in their careers.

I worked for several years as an IC and as a Tech Lead. Before moving to Germany, I was a lecturer for 10 years at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico.

I speak at conferences and like sharing my experience and knowledge in any possible way. I love talking about open-source, free software, communities, women+ in tech, career development, and collaboration.

I ran a blog and a video channel with content for students and people interested in learning web development. Currently not as active as I will like.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, trying new food, reading a good book, and - before COVID - traveling.

What's next?

Support and sponsor one woman+ in their tech career.

As my mom always says: "One step at the time" and "Perseverance is my strength".
