I'm the founder and CEO of EasyBroker where our mission is to improve the experience of buying or renting your next home. I also founded the meetup Chilango Dev where we meet regularly to talk about topics related to software development.
I was born in Washington D.C., grew up in Maryland and studied Computer Science, East Asian History and Japanese at UMBC where I also was an exchange student for a year at Takushoku University in Tokyo. After graduating I worked primarily as a software developer at several startups until founding EasyBroker.
In 2005 I left the US to travel and get to know the world while working remotely. After traveling 26 countries in roughly two years I was inspired to create EasyBroker after many bad experiences working with real estate agents. I couldn't believe that you could receive such bad service when making what is probably the most important purchase of your life. I started EasyBroker in Buenos Aires but after six years Mexico grew into our biggest market so in 2012 I moved to Mexico City.
