Long time Linux/Free Software/Open Source enthusiast & developer, devoted parent, Kendo practitioner & instructor, buddhist & rocker... Weird mix eh?
I've been involved with computers since 1983, working first with the Commodore 64 and the TRS-80 doing theoretical big number mathematical work (mostly Fermat theorems) in assembler. In 1997 got my first taste of Linux and have been a Linux user, developer and evangelist ever since, creating the Puerto Rico Ubuntu user group in 2006.
Currently working as Director of Software Development for the Government of Puerto Rico after working for 11 years in the Permits and Regulations Agency (ARPE, OGPe), where I successfully managed to introduced Libre software and solutions that helped improve efficiency of business processes, reduce costs and optimize the use of existing hardware. Most of my projects are released as Libre source and can be found on github.
I also enjoy hardware hacking and embedded development, doing aftermarket customizations and improvements to everyday items. As part of working with embedded platforms, I've done software emulators for the Motorola 68K, the 6502 and the 6809 culminating in 1997 with the release of madNES a Nintendo Entertainment System emulator.
I'm also the creator of Mayan EDMS a Free and Open Source document management system used worldwide. On the professional DMS side, I'm a member of the first batch of CompTIA Certified Document Imaging Architects (CDIA+).
Aside from creating solutions I'm also a firm believer in the power of crowdsourcing whether for data o for funding purposes and have help fund many succesfull projects: Gameduino, IRONBUDS, InkShield, Teagueduino, Global Village Construction Set, The Versalette, Digispark, Schema Migrations for Django and the OpenShot Video Editor.
