Interests

Apart from being a Tech Lead / Backend Developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. I like biking, hiking and spending a few days on the nature, probably camping on some quiet National Park. I also like playing football (that's how we call it in Argentina!) with my friends, although it's not that popular in these latitudes.

When forced indoors, I try to read as many books as possible, I enjoy a number of movies and television shows with a hot coffee, I am an aspiring chef and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the back-end web development world.
