About Me

I'm a Computer Engineering graduate from UC Riverside, born and raised in Riverside, CA. I'm currently a Software Engineer working on vehicle controls algorithms for General Motors.

I like tinkering with hardware and working on projects that revolve around embedded systems, operating systems, emulation, etc. I also like to spend time being able to reach out to younger, underrepresented peers who need guidance under the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
