Hola, I'm Guedis!

I thrive at the intersection of engineering, product, data, and people. Open source. Technologist. He/him.

Builder

Motivated by making an impact, I build products and services that improve our way of life.

I believe in helpful communities and leveraging technology for social good.

Questions I'm thinking about

My broader interests can be mapped across time(past, present, future) and scale/orders of magnitude (individual, community, world).

I currently act on it via building things within communities.

World

  • Sustainable Development Goals: "How can we achieve a more sustainable world and future?"
  • Effective Altruism: "How can we do the most good?"

Individual + Community

  • FARTSx: "How can we improve our feelings, actions, thoughts, relationships, and situations/environments?"
  • Communities: "How can we foster inclusive, helpful, innovative, equitable communities?"
  • Conversations: "How can we learn from and help each other?"

Speaker

I enjoy speaking on topics related to technology, applied psychology, the people/product aspect of innovation, and community building.
