In a few words

Born and raised in Bolivia, I am a enthusiastic entrepreneur that graduated with a Computer Science degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) (Class of 2017). Moreover, I am an Apple, Google, Microsoft and Xerox Scholar.

In 2015, I started Flux Ventures, a holdings company that created many brands such as Flux Chargers, and Young Slacker Media. I now serve as the Chairman of Flux Ventures.

In my part-time, I am a (small) Angel Investor in Everipedia (world's largest encyclopedia with more pages than Wikipedia) and Snapwire (Royalty-free stock photos, $5M valuation).

I also started Future Sharks (interviews to entrepreneurs). Lastly, I like rapping and making viral snaps under my famous alter ego YoungSlacker.
