My primary role is to coordinate with multiple teams in the company to ensure that we design and build our products in a way that satisfies our clients’ needs and helps the company continue to be a leader in the market. 

What do you think makes DealerOn different OR what sets DealerOn apart from other players in the space?

What do you like most about working at DealerOn? 

I love the highly collaborative work environment and a culture that allows everyone in the company to share ideas and to materialize them. I’ve been able to grow as a person and as a professional by having great co-workers and mentors who’ve cared about my development and allowed me to be involved in interesting projects. 

What is a fun fact about you that people don’t know? 

I love dancing to Latin American music. I once won an award for dancing salsa.  

Who/What motivates you? 

I love solving problems and finding ways to make life easier for people.  

What are you passionate about? 

I’m passionate about technology and the ways we can apply it to automate repetitive tasks, as well as using it to improve our quality of life.  

Who inspires you? (present day) 

Elon Musk. Even though I do not completely agree with many of his points of view, I admire his entrepreneurial spirit, his ability to solve problems in innovative ways, and his capacity to persevere when the odds are against him. 

I’m passionate about technology and the ways we can apply it to automate repetitive tasks, as well as using it to improve our quality of life.  

If you could meet anyone from history who would it be?  

I’d love to meet Leonardo DaVinci. I’ve always been amazed at his mastery of many fields, and his creative thinking. It’d be great to take a painting course with him and learn about his way of seeing and understanding the world. 

Do you have any serious hobbies or interests outside of work? What do you like to do in your free time? 

I’m passionate about Artificial Intelligence. I’m the co-founder of a startup that utilizes AI to solve and automate processes for engineering companies.  

I also love playing the guitar and try to do it as much as time allows.  

Do you have any unusual phobias? 

I don’t have unusual or extreme phobias, but I do have a fear of heights. I get spooked whenever I’m in a Ferris Wheel and it stops right when I’m on the top. What’s funny is I love amusement parks and always end up going to the Ferris Wheel, which I instantly regret when I’m hovering in the air. Happens every time! 

If you could have any superpower what would it be? 

I’d love to be able to teleport. I have family and friends in many places in the world, and teleporting would make it very convenient to be able to see them frequently.
