Developer, Designer, Entrepreneur, Artist
Hi! My name is Ruben. I like to make cool things. My tech projects usually focus around apps for the Web and iOS. I am interested in using technology to simplify people's daily lives, as well as in designing new ways for people to interact with information.
Currently, I live in the Bay Area, where I work for Well Health Inc, a startup working on a healthcare communications platform. In my spare time, I like to make art (digital and otherwise, but mostly digital these days). Last summer, I lived in NYC where I was a lead computer science instructor at All Star Code, teaching high school students of color to code. Last Spring, I graduated from Bowdoin College with a degree in Computer Science, attended WWDC as a 2015 Student Scholar, and helped write a book on building Swift apps for WatchOS. In 2014, I interned at Digett, a web development company based out of San Antonio, where I built a Ruby on Rails & Ember.JS app for an early-stage startup client. In 2013, I founded Dining with Strangers, an interest-based social discovery app. Scroll down to read about a few of my tech projects; for more information about me, check out my resume or reach out via the Contact section below.
