~❯ Linux Sysadmin / Web Technologies


I currently work at SAP in Monterrey, México. I used to be a Unix/Linux Sysadmin working in the atos Websystems team. I was formerly a Project Manager and Frontend Developer.

I built quite a few websites, worked extensively on Web Development, Web Design, e-learning, e-commerce, SEO, and general Digital Marketing. I used to live in Saltillo, Mexico. You can check my old portfolio, updated online resume, and blog around here.

I also do external Consulting and often work as a Trainer for corporate customers on several IT Areas (from soft skills like Project Management basics to technologies like Unix/Linux Systems Administration, Responsive Web Design, Structured Data Optimization and basic Project Management).

Mostly short stuff about my clickety wandering through technologies (I don't do the social stuff, so no cutesy pictures of trivial stuff there). I try to keep it sparse and not too personal to maintain my privacy profile, but update regularly.

I also love data visualization, version control systems and good software practices, so I frequently post generated videos with the source code history of my website or projects (of course they're git repositories):

Career and Education

I worked at atos as a Service Unit Lead for the Websystems Team. They provide high reliability engineering for medium and large server environments for several large organizations. My team supports Unix/Linux following ITIL, so we see a lot of Red Hat, SuSE and some legacy Solaris/SunOS servers.

Before that I worked 7 years in WSI / First Consulting Group, ever since getting an internship the last semester of my career (Software Engineer). Lots of experience, outgrown environment and role.
I started as a developer and systems administrator and got to be a Project Manager. I did a lot of interaction with clients and managed all the projects for WSI.

Linux and Unix Experience

I've been using Open Source Unix variants for about 19 years now. I do lots of distro hopping and BSD dabbling, so I've picked up some skills in different environments.

About this Website

This website is an HTML 5/CSS 3 compliant design loaded in a hosted Google Cloud Storage instance and taking advantage of Cloudflare technologies to ensure uninterrupted service. I grew tired of hosting providers spotty service for VPS so into the clouds I went.
I can heartily endorse it as an outstanding combination.

Reading list

I read voraciously, and keep track of the books I consume. You can check out the latest books I'm reading. This helps when asked about book recommendations or my current mind stream.
