Short Biography

Currently doing a PhD and working as a software developer I see a direct connection between my rural Mexican upbringing and the types of technology I want to be a part of co-building.

I am compelled by the ways in which Indigenous and rural knowledge are situated, the local and land-based teachings. The duality of communality and organizational structure mirrors what I try to live in my professional life. My aims are not of rapid production, but of an organic, slow-building of technologies that are more sustainable and accessible by also questioning why a technology should be built or not. I love creative coding and the free imagination that goes with it; also love sci-fi and dressing in many colours and textures; love many other things.
