Luis Oquendo

Tech, Biking, and Spanish!

Howdy and welcome to my profile! I'm an IT Engineer, Student, and Philanthropist! I love biking, helping others, teaching, being a big kid at heart, and learning new things. I absolutely LOVE teaching Others! I have a background as an IT (Information Technology) Engineer where I educated and supported youth and adults in technology. I worked with ages 7 - 12 in the nonprofit sector while volunteering to help feed those in need of food. I have also worked with ages 13 - 19 in technology where I also helped them build work experience and ethic in summer classes and with mentorship. I have also spent much time in my personal life with amazing children who have FASD and ADHD. I also have sponsored and had children in my life from places such as Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Guatemala. Additionally, I have educated adults in technology basics all the way on how to best navigate it for their needs! I am currently working on entrepreneurial and philanthropic projects and furthering myself in tech through education. I can't wait to "meet" you! Have a great day and stay awesome!

Howdy! A little bit about me.
