I studied Computer Science and Engineering at Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires. I'm originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and currently living in Uruguay.
My work is related to distributed systems, machine learning, interactivity, and robotics. My goal with tech is to bring new experiences to people.
I cofounded and was formerly CTO at OpenZeppelin. I also helped create Decentraland. Currently, I'm studying machine learning, music, and 普通话. I'm also investing and helping out early stage tech explorations at Buzhi.

- Esports, or competitive play of videogames. I once trained and played in Starcraft 2 tournaments. Valuable resources for learning were Sean Plott's Day TV and Shaun Clark's Terran Tutorials. More recent, Vibe's Bronze to GM series are an amazing way to get better fast, focusing on fundamentals. Lately, I've picked up Legends of Runeterra, a card game by Riot Games, and I'm hoping to get better. I usually suck at most games but deeply enjoy the journey of improving myself and the life lessons learned along the way.
