Hi! I am an industrial engineer from El Salvador. I have dedicated ten years to organizations focused on social development and volunteer mobilization. My previous experience comes from Habitat for Humanity El Salvador, where I worked for eight years prior to Appropedia Foundation.
Over the past few years, I have also collaborated with different organizations such as the Latin American Fab Lab Network, Reacción and Fundación Insitu in the design and execution of technological projects and initiatives by using participation as a medium for collaboration with non-technical communities to solve social and environmental problems. In 2020 I taught a short course and seminar at ESEN and Brandeis University respectively.
I am currently a board member of Internet Society El Salvadorand lead of the Creative Commons El Salvador Chapter. I became the first Salvadoran awarded as an Innovator Under 35 by MIT Technology Review.

Sometimes, I'm editing help pages or fighting spam, while some others, I'm helping facilitate work with professors who are running classes on Appropedia.
