About About

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by

Call me Esteban. I'm a seasoned digital manager who specializes in Marketing Project Management for tech companies. Even though I call the sunny east coast of Uruguay home with my wife, kid and dogs, I’ve worked most of my career for US-based companies.

Over the past 20 years I’ve held various positions at internet-based companies and have thoroughly enjoyed my exciting journey. I’m truly grateful for all the amazing people I’ve worked with, and proud of all the products, apps, and services we’ve improved.

German Höffner
Head of Marketing

Esteban is a great addition to any team that is looking for a Project Management Mastermind that has the ability to quickly learn any skills needed to understand a task. During the four years we worked together he has been a constant source of great ideas and his attitude of getting things done made him an absolute pleasure to work with.

Justin Dorfman
Open Source Program Manager

Esteban really understands the ins-and-outs of Nginx. When MaxCDN acquired his website (nginxtips.com) I was so excited because I could then ask him anything about Nginx (that wasn't on Google or Stackoverflow) and he knew the answer.
