Hi! My name is Ricardo Morin and this is my blog. I volunteer as a developer for environmental non-profit organizations such as OregonWild and Provita. For Oregon Wild I developed HOWL, Highlighting Oregon’s Wild Lands, and Logging in Oregon. For Provita, I developed the on-line version of the Venezuelan Red List of Ecosystems. I also created RikiTraki, a GPS track sharing site.
My interests include all kinds of geekery related to web development, both client and server side, web mapping and geographical information systems. I am an avid hiker, which is the reason I started RikiTraki in the first place. I also love latin music, especially Cuban genres such as Son, Timba and Salsa, and I enjoy dancing casino-style salsa.
In my blog, I discuss my projects, but I may include all kinds of rants as well.
I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I used to work for Intel Corporation and I retired in March, 2015. I am now freelancing and doing my own stuff.
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and immigrated to these great United States of America in 1986.
I am married to Hilde, my favorite artist. You should check her stuff out. It is really amazing.
