About Me

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Christian D. Aracena and I am a full-stack developer living in New York City. I enjoy all things related to tech and working with others in fun and productive projects.

I really enjoy coding, learning new technologies and improving on previously acquired skills. I'm also an avid gym goer, who likes to spend his time on the weekends with a good read. My favorite video game of all time is Shenmue and fighting games have a special place in my heart.
