I was born in Mexico City, and when I was a kid I decided that there could not be anything cooler than being an engineer. I came up with a "master plan" on how to get there. I went to a full immersion French high school where I graduated as an Electronics Technician and got awarded a scholarship to attend a private university. I graduated from ITESM-CEM with a B.S. in Electronics Systems Engineering (the closest thing in the US would be Computer Engineering).
National Instruments hired me right out of college and I moved to Austin, TX. I worked at NI for 6 years and then left to get my Masters in Electrical Engineering specializing in Medical devices at the University of Texas.
While working on my Masters, people found out that I knew LabVIEW, and next thing I knew I was being paid to work on LabVIEW projects. I realized pretty quickly that not only was I good at it, but I enjoyed it a lot. So, I started my own LabVIEW consulting company and I have been doing that since 2006.
When I am not doing LabVIEW, I do pottery for fun.
