Roberto is responsible for maintaining and developing websites for EPIC (Earthscape and CIAO). The work includes managing and assigning markup work to support staff, building mini-websites for special sections of sites, workflow enhancements and updating site content.
After getting a degree in Finance from Universidad San Francisco de Quito, and working in the Operations departments in a couple of successful businesses (a tour operator and a hardware store), he traveled to New York to find new territories.
For two years he worked in the photography field. Started as an assistant to various commercial and editorial photographers and eventually published his own work in a few publications (Time Out New York and Latina Magazine). This type of work led him to the digital world when he needed to show his portfolio on line.
After building his first website to display his own work he became interested in various other technologies (image manipulation, animation software, scripting and java programming); hence his involvement in multimedia and the web. Since then, he has been working in the digital world creating websites and applications for commercial and educational purpose.
