Welcome to my digital campfire

My name is Ramses. I’m an educator turned professional learner. Yes, I nerd-out over things for a living, something that has given my life more purpose than I could have ever dreamed of.

By knowing how to learn fast and build on top of my knowledge long-term, I’ve been able to pivot twice in my 8-year career. From teacher to enterprise account manager to technical specialist; every pivot was possible because I know how to teach myself.

You’re now at my blog, my digital campfire. Here I share stories, distill ideas, and sharpen my thinking. My goal in life is to get to know myself and others, and find meaning through work that benefits many.

Please, join me in my journey.
