I am a software developer working for Centro de Autonomía Digital in Quito, Ecuador, mainly with privacy, security and cryptography issues.
Once upon a time I worked for ThoughtWorks. I've been involved in many different subjects along the way, including programming language design and implementation (JRuby, Ioke, Seph) - but for the foreseeable future, working on privacy enhanching technologies seem like the best use of my time.
In 2019 I became a political prisoner of the Ecuadorean government. I was in jail for 70 days and then released with a Habeas Corpus. The legal process continues, although on January 31st, 2023, my innocence was ratified by a tribunal of judges.
