García Salas

Hello! I live in San Francisco, California and work as a Software Engineer at Airbnb. I love imagining, dreaming, and building technology that people use and love; while expressing my creativity through code, design, or any other medium. These days, I have fun by crafting digital Experiences and Tools for the World Wide Web.

I was born and raised in Lima, Perú and came to the United States to study Computer Science at UC Berkeley. In the past I've done internships at Airbnb, Pinterest, and Laboratoria. Previously, I was also a KP Fellow and an Accel Scholar. I first got into programming by making video games and I haven't stopped making things ever since. I am grateful to the communities, teachers, and friends that have guided and supported me, and the accessibility to information that the internet enables. You can find my résumé here.

I strive to live a life of adventure and service while building the future I want to see. At the moment, I am broadly interested in globalization, newly industrialized countries, decentralized apps, ed-tech, developer/design/creative tools, the immersive web, and the pluriverse.

Two of my biggest joys are understanding and creating. In addition to programming, I like visiting museums, reading, watching documentaries and movies, listening to music, taking photos, learning languages, travelling, going for long walks, learning the history of things that fascinate me, making digital art, drawing, drinking tea, and doing anything in between.

I live true to myself and I live in the present, I follow my heart and intuition, and I exist first and foremost to “love”.
