Alejandro Perez (Technical Lead and Co-Founder)
Alejandro is the technical tour de force behind Pingwheel, where he builds simple and addictive products injected with fun. Evolving impossibly crazy ideas into simple features is just another day in the life for Alejandro.
Born in Havana, Cuba, he is Pingwheel's trilingual reference for English, Spanish and PHP. When he's not working or studying, he enjoys playing soccer and listening to music. But please, do not bring up Barcelona or Pitbull.
