Software Engineer turned Program Manager, I'm passionate about people-empowering technology. Throughout the years, I've been involved with robotics, image processing, computer vision, biomedical research, volunteering groups, machine learning and teaching.

My courses on Udemy are braindumps of how I explore new tools and topics, distilled to the bare minimum time needed to capture the most important lessons to be learned.
