I’m an entrepreneur and product guy. Software designer, engineer and full-stack web developer. Multidisciplinary explorer, challenge seeker and constant learner, always avid for knowledge in new fields and disciplines.
Touching on everything related to startups and innovation. Stronger in product and engineering management, software design and full-stack web development. Lately more immersed in design research, experience design, influence, storytelling & writing, life, and personal growth.
Ex-CTO at Facephi, founder of Deebbler and Wakeando, two unfortunately unsuccessful tech startups, I’ve been over 10 years designing, building and marketing native and web software products in areas such as artificial intelligence, education, e-commerce or social networks.
Currently working on a publication project with my brother Jose Rodes to help other non-conformists get on their right path.
Born in Alicante, I studied Computer Science and other related specializations in the University of Alicante and the Universitetet i Bergen (Norway). Also Marketing and Business Administration at ESUMA Marketing & Business School.
Curious, introvert and slow thinker, conscious of our bounded rationality as human beings, who hates early non-fundamented judgments but loves to get new reasoned and constructive perspectives that enrich the big picture and get us closer to the truth.
Grateful for finding people with a sincere desire to make this world a better place.
Sad for pretentious behaviors based on the lack of ethics, egoism and dishonesty.

Designing and building useful software products that serve well their intended purpose, both for customers and the business, is often an intimidating challenge.

Yet, often we waste time, energy, and money on building software products that are useful for nobody or which end up bringing damaging side effects. An immersion below the surface. The answer…
