Dimas Guardado

Dimas is a software engineer and (occasionally) an actor and performer living and working in California’s East Bay. He is fascinated by models of individual and group learning and he naively hopes that he can learn a thing or two himself. He is a product of the Salvadoran Diaspora, and owes any success he has to the love and caring support of his family.
