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.

Core values

  • Efficiency - Working hard is great, but working smart is better.
  • Perseverance - Not giving up increases the chances of success.
  • Attitude - A positive mindset can help achieve the desired outcomes.
  • Speed - Don't over think things, move fast and pivot when necessary.
  • Integrity - Doing the right things make success long-lived.

Mini-Bio

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 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.
