A little bit about me and my life outside of work

Hi there!

I'm originally from Miami, Florida and moved up to Boston, MA about eight years ago. Before you ask - yes, I miss the sunshine, speaking Spanish wherever I go, and Cuban food! I studied sociology and anthropology at Wellesley College. I also learned a lot about how to apply a more human-centric perspective when building meaningful technical solutions. As a social scientist, I approach my study of human behavior with empathy and curiosity. I challenge assumptions with the goal of deepening our understanding. I use models and frameworks to untangle cultural complexities. I collect data - constantly. Since graduating, I've been constantly pursuing interesting problems to work on and surrounding myself with really talented people to work on them with. Along the way, I've also worked at my college radio station as a DJ, served as captain of my varsity soccer team as a goalkeeper, collected hundreds of vinyl records, and coached a bunch of young female soccer players in my town. I spend some time on weekends pouring natural wine at Rebel Rebel in Somerville, MA. I've also taught myself how to make linocut prints and take decent photographs.
