About Me

Hi, I am Santiago Gomez Lavin, a software engineer who is passionate about technology and coding. I am versed in Ruby, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Rails, Node.js, Express, Jade and Stylus, although my favorite language is definitely Javascript.

Despite graduating with a Computer Engineering degree, I spent the first years of my professional career working in finance and renewable energy while living abroad in Europe, Southeast Asia and Latin America. It was only after taking a year off from work when I realized that my true passion had always been technology and software, so I made my way to San Francisco to start working as a full-stack web developer, and I love it!

I believe that technology is the key to create a more organized, efficient and egalitarian world, where everyone can enjoy life in abundance. My life's goal is to help make this a reality by creating great software. When I am not coding you'll probably find me travelling, enjoying the outdoors, reading, dancing or running.
