In a few words

Born and raised in Bolivia, I am a enthusiastic Entrepreneur and Product Marketer that graduated with a Computer Science degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA '17). 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 (custom image platform). I also just launched a startup incubator in Bolivia called 6BLabs.

I also started Future Sharks (interviews to entrepreneurs). Lastly, I like rapping under my rapper name Young Slacker.

  • Young Slacker
    My Rapper Alter Ego
    I entered the Snapchat game pretty late (2015) but I quickly gained some popularity because of my eccentric snaps. I created Young Slacker Media as my main publishing company to run promotions and viral content. I'm also working on my first EP

    August 2016
  • Future Sharks
