About Me

Last updated: May 23, 2024

A picture of me.


I’m a software engineer at Google, specialized in iOS app development using Objective-C and Swift. I have some experience with other platforms and languages, but I’ve done iOS almost exclusively in all my jobs.


TODO: How I got into computer science.



I studied Computer Science at CETYS Universidad (Tijuana campus) from 2008 to 2012.

I went to high school to “la Lázaro” (Preparatoria Federal Lázaro Cárdenas) from 2005 to 2008, taking the “Computing” specialty.

Personal Life

I was born December 15, 1989 in in San Diego, CA, but raised in Tijuana, Mexico. I also have Mexican citizenship via my parents. I can speak Spanish (first language) and English, and hope to learn Mandarin some day to be able to speak with over 20% of the world in their native language 😁.

I lived in Tijuana from birth to Jun 2012, Mount Shasta from Jun 2012 to Oct 2013, Chula Vista (San Diego) from Oct 2013 to Feb 2016, Mountain View from Feb 2016 to Jun 2022, and back again in Chula Vista since Jun 2022.


Outside of working, parenting, and doing chores, my interests include:

Why “cananito”?

They used to call my grandfather "Canano" because they thought he looked like he was from Cananea (no clue why). Then when I was a kid, a couple of family members thought I looked a lot like my grandfather, so they started calling me "Cananito", which is the diminutive form of "Canano" in Spanish.
