Bombi-what?

The name BOMBILLAZO (pronounced bom-bee-JAH-zo) is a combination of the word "bombilla" (Spanish for "light bulb") with the Spanish augmentative/agent suffix "azo". the closest, most literal translation to English would be "Lightbulber". I think of it as "someone who comes up with new and bright ideas". For that reason I adopted "El Bombillazo" ("The Lightbulber") as my moniker. All my work is consolidated under this name.

Ethos

  • Work hard and smart; it increases the chances of success.
  • Sacrifice now to reap the rewards later.
  • Surround yourself by driven people.
  • Don't overthink things.
  • Perseverance is underrated.
  • Integrity. Learning. Passion. Success without these is short lived and shallow.

In Depth

From a very young age I was fascinated by science, computers and technology (thanks, Jurassic park and Nintendo). My father, a Civil Engineer, also played a big role in getting interested in design and mathematics. Were it with LEGO blocks, Mario Paint, modeling clay or Kid Pix on a Macintosh, I spent countless hours as a kid tinkering and inventing. As I grew up I progressed to more complex projects with LEGO Mindstorms, web programming and video editing. With those growing interests I decided to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering. I feel blessed for having a career and hobby where I can combine my passion for creating and technical skills.
