Hello_

Hi, I'm Daniel Morales, and I'm going to tell you a little bit of my story.

I got started in programming because I couldn't find a technical co-founder, willing to risk following an idea, so I decided to learn on my own at least the basics to build an MVP.

When I was able to build an e-commerce without a technical co-founder, I felt I had super powers, and I could build anything I wanted.

The e-commerce I built in PHP (without any framework) sold almost half a million dollars a year, I had a team of almost 30 people, and raised $350,000 of investment (in Colombia), but finally failed due to my lack of experience in different ways: business and technical (I don't blame anyone for my failure). That was between 2013 and 2016 and it was the best professional experience of my life (for now!)

I graduated from a business school, but found an incredible passion for programming and data. I started programming with PHP, now I work on a daily basis with Ruby (web) and Python (data science).

I'll be honest with you, I don't like to work for anyone! (I mean, in the traditional way, for a big non-tech company, hoping for a retirement). I really like startups, going from zero to one.

For that reason, I'm not looking for a job, what I value most in life is my freedom. Freedom to make decisions, freedom to work on what I really like, freedom to manage my time (even if I work twice as hard as most people), freedom to build, freedom of limits, freedom to make things happen.

So I have this portfolio just for:

  1. * If you have a great idea for the US or Europe and you need a technical co-founder on equal terms with you and you want to contact me to talk
  2. * If you have experience as an entrepreneur: raised some round and you know the Silicon Valley ecosystem and want to contact me to talk
  3. * If you are a student and you are taking one of my Data Science courses and you want to be inspired by something, or just stalk my experience :)
