Electronics Engineer. Professor at the Faculty of Systems Engineering, National University of Colombia, 2004 - 2007. Researcher at the Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation of Colombia since 2005. Senior Technical Leader at Thales Group.

I started programming in the '90s, when computers were more expensive than cars and there was no Internet. These were the times of MS-DOS, Turbo Pascal, floppy disks. In the early 2000s it was really difficult to find good technical material on programming in Spanish. There were no online translation services either. So, I started translating some articles, tutorials, books, mainly in English and Russian. That's probably the reason why I was hired as a professor at the Faculty of Systems Engineering. I also worked for BellSouth, developing CDMA software before the smartphone era.

Currently I develop telecommunications solutions for an aerospace company, edit the CelerSMS Journal and volunteer at the Educamas Foundation.

All materials that I have written or translated are in the public domain.
