Hey, I'm David.
Like my site? It's built with top-of-the-spear, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology: HTML and some CSS.
No, there's no dark mode and there will not be.
Anyway... I guess you're here to know more about me. If not, I recomend you this site with puppy pictures.
Who am I?
I'm a mexican guy in my twenties trying my best to succeed in life. Am I doing a good job? I believe so.
In terms of work...
I'm a full-stack web developer (yeah, we exist). I love the web and everything that revolves around it. Currently doing back-end work at Nubank, a huge digital bank in Latam.Here's my CV for more details.
In terms of hobbies...
I enjoy many, many things:
Training and playing with my dogs. I have two Border Collies, Nina and Alyx. Having them and making sure they behave appropiately is a full-time job. And I love it.
Writing. Mainly about personal finance, investments and personal development, but also about technology and life journaling. I run a personal finance blog in Spanish named Perro Dinero. Yes, you'll find pictures of my dogs.
Reading. In order to learn and write better, I also need to read a lot. My favorite genres are sci-fi and personal development. Check my Goodreads profile for more details.
Playing videogames. They have been an important time of my live, and I believe they will continue to be in the long future.
Teaching. I do so mainly in the form of writing, but also in 1:1 conversations. I teach and share my knowledge around money and investments to mexican people, and about technology to anyone who wants it.
My core values...
There are plenty of things that change over time, but my core values are not one of them. These values are what drive all my decisions:
Family. My family is paramount. If something's gonna harm my relationship with my family, then I won't do it.
Privacy. I'm against using people's data to drive revenue. That's reflected throughout my whole lifestyle. I don't support any of Facebook's companies. I don't have Instagram. I don't use Google Search. I don't use Chrome. I don't use Gmail. It's troublesome and impractical most of the time? Yes. But that's the path I decided to take, and you can do as you please.
There are some conflicts with privacy and family tho. I can't completely leave WhatsApp because that's where most of my family hangs around; and that's the most used messaging platform used in Mexico.
Oh, by the way, this site doesn't track you at all. I don't even know how many people visit it, and I don't care.
Money. The amount of money is rarely the driver of my decisions right now. I have a good insight on how much is enough. So, if I need to trade freedom and flexibility for money, I'll probably won't do it. If a decision is likely to help me sleep better at night, then I'll take it.
Meaningful work. Sounds like cliché, but working in something I love and enjoy makes a big difference in my life. Especially if it's something I'm a user of.
At this point in my life I wouldn't switch jobs for money or status, I'd do it only for more meaningful work.
And, that's me in a nutshell
If you know Spanish and want to improve your money game, follow me on Twitter, the only social network I have.
If you want to hire me as a developer, download my CV or visit my LinkedIn profile.
If you just want to talk, or anything else, email me. Yes, I still like email. And yes, puppy pictures are welcome.
