I like meeting new people and working with emerging technology.
Here are a few of my favorite projects.
RESEARCH: CRYPTO ADOPTION IN VENEZUELA
I have been following crypto adoption trends in Venezuela since February 2018.
Venezuela, once the richest country in Latin America, is in the midst of a humanitarian and economic crisis. It is precisely because of Venezuela’s dire state that the country has the opportunity to be a milestone in the history of crypto-adoption. I have presented my research at Crypto Springs, Blockchain Summit LATAM, Fidelity and MIT.
Skills: research, public speaking
VOLUNTEER: CUATRO POR VENEZUELA
Cuatro Por Venezuela was founded in October of 2016 by four Venezuelan women living in the United States, compelled to action to help their country. The foundation is dedicated to creating programs and partnerships to deliver food, medicine, and medical supplies to Venezuelan communities in need.
I manage donor relations, the website, and the Foundation’s annual reports that detail the organization's activities and community impact.
Skills: project management, customer service, marketing
WORK: PROGRAM LEAD AT CIVIL FOUNDATION
Civil is an early-stage startup committed to building a free and independent press on the Ethereum blockchain. As program lead, I work with journalists to help them understand how to use our publishing tools and services.
Skills: project management, user research, distributed teams
HOBBY: BLOCKCHAIN LATINX MEETUP
I host a monthly meetup group called Blockchain Latinx. I believe that Latin America is one of the most important regions for blockchain and crypto adoption. The purpose of this group is to bring together people who want to explore and discuss ways in which decentralized systems can benefit society. The group has been active since May 2018 with over 150 members.
Skills: community outreach, events, partnerships
