One of the things I'm most passionate about is coaching and mentoring others and helping them grow in their careers. I've always found it incredibly rewarding to watch team members succeed and reach their goals, and I'm excited to share my experience and expertise with others.

With my technical knowledge, business skills, and product expertise, I can provide valuable guidance on everything from technical design and solutions to team management and leadership.

I'm also deeply committed to using technology for social good and have founded two projects focused on improving the quality of life for people with disabilities using technology. These projects have been recognized for their impact and success, and I'm always looking for ways to leverage technology for social impact.

As a software developer actively looking for new job opportunities, I was primarily seeking guidance on that front in our session. However, Ricardo went above and beyond in his approach to helping me.

Not only did he provide excellent insights and advice on how to improve my job search, but he also offered helpful tips on how to enhance my professional presence and profile on LinkedIn.

He genuinely cared about helping in any way he possibly could, drawing from his extensive experience and knowledge to do so.

His friendly and approachable personality blow me away and made it easier to discuss any concerns or questions that I had.

I would highly recommend Ricardo to anyone seeking mentorship in any area of their professional career as a software professional.

Thank you, Ricardo, for our mentoring session!
