Juan is the VP of Engineering at Splice. 

Moving to America in 2007 Juan initially worked as a chef after studying culinary arts. After the financial crisis of 2008, he found himself moving away from cheffing and started building websites for people. He initially learned his computer skills from building myspace pages for his friend’s bands. 

It wasn’t long until Juan moved into the startup scene in US. He moved from Florida to New York and began his role at Splice.
