His love to technology was followed by his studies on IT. During his college time, he was looking the 'connecting dot' between IT and the HR, so he decided to graduate from the Human Resources Bachelor in University of Guanajuato, México.
On this context, being part of a collective, he developed an online software (iRIS 3.0) where IT and Education merge to provide an integral solution to manage curriculum.
After a while, he worked as a Projects Leader in HR Office in the U of Guanajuato. During this time his other passion was discovered: how technology affects the way that we communicate inside and outside the institutions? what is the influence of online networks in this new social setting?
