Rolando Urias

CEO at ToxiK StudiO

I was born in Empalme, Sonora, Mexico, I was in High School, at the age of 15 when I discovered HTML and CSS, I saw some websites that inspired me to learn it, and it was amazing! Then came JavaScript and PHP, it was a little harder to learn programming (I must confess I’m not a brilliant programmer), but the possibilities with this knowledge are Great! The funniest thing was that I decided to go to Hermosillo, Sonora to study business Management instead of a Computer Science Carrier! That’s OK.

When I entered to the University, I used to design websites and make money with it, So, HTML was useful, but I met new friends, Corel Draw, Freehand, Fireworks, Flash and Dreamweaver, that's when the Magic Happened! (at least For me!)

When I Finished Business Management I came to Tucson, AZ and studied some Web Design along with other Developer courses, and knew from the bottom of my hear that Web Design and Computer Science was the love of my Life!

I built some apps and started making money with them, at the same time I had a Part time job as a Server in a Restaurant and I was a Freelancer, building Websites and other Graphic design stuff.

I had a Website named, it was a very good business for me, I used to go to the Night Clubs to take pictures of the People in the Club and then post the pictures on my Website, so, people used to go to the website to see the pictures and share them on their Facebook page, etc. it was good because I used to have a lot of local traffic thru my website and I used to advertised many local businesses, so it was Good!

Finally, since I had a lot of connections with local business owners, I created this Magazine Hola Tucson and That’s what I do now for a living, and I’m very thankful because is a very good job, I’m my own boss, I manage my time the way I want and is a very good business.
