Welcome to my online home. I use this website to share some things about my intellectual life, explore my interests, clarify my thoughts, and practice the craft of writing.

I was born and raised in Panama until I went to study economics at the University of Texas at Austin, where I graduated in 2012. I came back to Panama, worked at many companies, and ended up in the only venture capital firm in Panama to learn more about entrepreneurship.

During that job, I learned a lot about startups, Y-combinator, founders, and venture capital. I realized there were not enough startups locally for a VC to thrive in Panama — yet. So I decided to become an entrepreneur.

I co-founded Porta Norte in 2014 and since have acquired the know-how to start an intentional master-planned community. Porta Norte is the biggest walkable solarpunk town in Panama City.

I write in Spanish and English about urbanism, philosophy, books, cities, wisdom, entrepreneurship, and my life.

In my free time, I watch documentaries or interviews on YouTube, write, read books, mountain bike, play racket sports, surf the internet, work out, work, bbq, and hang out with friends and family.

If you value my writing, I’ll let you incentivize me to write more through crypto 🙂
