Updated April 2015
...at least two good ideas before breakfast.

I have an inborn technolust. For more than 15 years I have worked in a variety of fields such as rich media, systems automation, consumer electronics, video games, Internet marketing and MPEG-4 systems; in places such as U.S., China, Sweden and Mexico. I have given talks on MPEG-4 Systems authoring, Open Source Education and Cloud Computing. My primary focus since 2004 has been information systems and Internet marketing. I invented a CMS method called Search-based Contextual Routing (SbCR)  and a novel Social Lead Generation system.

I am currently partner and CTO for Virket, an Internet marketing agency and SaaS provider based in Mexico City.
