The Dots


I started my career developing products for edtech in 2003.
After that, I worked on a knowledge management platform to support SOX compliance. The results drove national aviation regulatory changes.
For the past five years I've been working with product and business development. I graduated in Class 1 of Startup Chile with my first company, in HR tech, and also led a Silicon Valley startup entry strategy in Latin America.
Then I joined a 3D printing startup founding team. The company focus on very interesting pain points of the industry, and our work and thought leadership have earned us strong reputation and media attention.

I currently work for an edtech startup in Silicon Valley helping school district manage change and experiment with new instructional models.
I enjoy social media more than I should, read less than I would like to, spend more time watching senseless TV than I admit, need deep human connection more than I realize, miss my family more than I would imagine.
I like cooking, running, reading, sewing, sun bathing, Python, silence, hiking and yoga. I pray because I'm helpless. I volunteer because it helps me while (and maybe more than) I help other people.
I should get a dog.
