New Employee Alert: Ruben Custodio

StudyMode’s Frontend Development team doubled in size last month, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to now have 2 people concentrating on rolling out delightful user interfaces. Here’s our newest hire in his own words. Welcome Ruben!

Ruben C.
My name is Ruben Custodio and I am a Peruvian-American developer working out here in Los Angeles. I grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA and also attended Cal Poly SLO. I think of myself as a relaxed, down-to-earth guy who loves music and being active. I have played guitar for about 8 years and I find it relaxing to either play my favorite covers or just doodle around in E minor. My favorite sports are as follows: Snowboarding, Football, Soccer and Basketball. I played many sports growing up and I’ve always had a competitive edge. As a side note I am engaged to be wed in May of 2015 and I couldn’t be happier.
