I’m Edwin Xico, and I used to do a little of everything, I like to do a lot of things. From reading novels to skating; from enjoying a nice moment cooking something new to spend the watch full seasons of TV series eating only fast food.
Time makes a person grow and so does our obligations. I realised that there is not enough time to do everything I liked and still be successful, so I decided to focus on the things I liked the most and from those came the topics I write on my different blogs.
Professionally, I work in the digital marketing and web technologies industry, but in general I like to get involved and strongly support organisations that are generating a positive impact on society. Finally, I enjoy taking a few hours during the week to go out on my bike to discover new roads, or take my best friend “Lucho” for a trip, and document some of our adventures.
