Juan here. (Or Juampi, Juan Pablo, John, flaco, numbnuts, or whatever you feel like calling me.) This is my website.
I was born in San Juan, Argentina on November 6th, 1990.
My parents worked as academics and engineers. My father worked as an electrical engineer and taught physics at the local National University of San Juan. My mother was one of the first female software engineers in San Juan, and also taught computer science at the University.
In 1996, just before my sixth birthday, my father accepted a job in Boston, Massachusetts for a Japanese company that manufactured floppy disks. Our family immigrated to the United States that year and we began new lives as Americans, first in Massachusetts, and later in Texas.
I studied Political Science and Classics and I received my B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and later my M.A. from the University of Chicago. I’ve spent time living in Argentina, Massachusetts, Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Seville, Utah, Ireland, and now California.
Currently, I am living in the San Francisco Bay Area with my partner and our Golden Retriever.
