I’m a software engineer based in Colombia (not Columbia) with more than 8 years of experience. I work remotely as a C# backend engineer. I specialize in building APIs and backend code with .NET technologies. Mainly ASP.NET Core, and SQL Server these days.

I help teams grow high-quality backend software through clean code and unit testing.

Fun facts

I’m a cat owner, vim user, plain-text lover, and Zettelkasten practitioner.

What I write about

I write about learning and programming. I want to share what I have learned in my journey as a software engineer.

In this blog, you can find tips and advice, libraries I use, issues I have solved, lessons learned the hard way, success and failure stories.

I’ve been featured in Exception Not Found as a Guest Writer.
