I have almost 18 years of experience working in several first-line companies. I'm a scarce resource. I mix communications and sales skills with a rock-solid technical background.
I have experience deploying and administering several technologies, like Windows Server, Linux, Docker, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Terraform, InfluxDB, Grafana, Prometheus, Ansible, Veeam, VMware, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, G Suite, Office 365, and a few more. I also spent the last six years doing presentations to technical and business decision-makers all around Latam as Cloud Pre-Sales and Cloud Business Manager.
In 2020 I got the following recognitions:
- Traefik Ambassador
- Winner of the Founder's Choice Award of InfluxData
I know about business. I know about tech. I think that I am a good fit if you're looking for a Speaker to help promote your brand, and/or a Community Leader to accelerate the adoption of your technology in Latam.
