Hi everyone! I’m new here! My name is Mikel.
I’m both an US and EU citizen, with Spanish upbringing, born in Florida, currently living in Miami, but lived Venezuela up to my late teens. I’ve lived most of my life between Bqto (Venezuela), Miami (US), Boston (US), and London (UK). Fluent in Spanish and English.
I’m a backend developer (Golang/Dartlang/Kubernetes/Google Cloud) with a communications startup called LiveNinja in Miami. Also, Wyncode grad.
Although not a fully digital nomad yet, I’ve travel around a bit and I’m ever so more intrigued with the nomadic lifestyle!
One memorable experience would be having backed packed around Western and Eastern Europe by train during Iceland’s volcanic eruption (Eyjafjallajökull) in 2010. From one day to the other, everyone had to travel by land (mostly train) due to all the cancelled flights. The trains were packed to the last inch! It was not easy but got to learn how to sleep in the hallways during train rides and met tons of unfortunate, but interesting travelers on the way.
Looking forward to learning tons! I’m here for anyone in Miami and the Miami tech scene.
