My name is Ricardo Chavarria. I was born in Costa Rica, but I’ve called Panama my home since 1998.

I earned a B.S.  degree in Computer Science from Florida State University in 2006, and an M.S. degree in Computer Science – Video Games from University of Southern California in 2008.

I spent 6 years of my life living and working in Silicon Valley, specifically San Francisco, California. During my time there, I had the joy of working with enormously talented people at LucasArts and Kabam.

Since 2015, I’ve been living in Panama working as Director of Technology and Head of Office at Admios, an established near-shoring firm with roots in San Francisco, California.

In 2015 I also started a video game venture with a few friends, Fivebits. We like to develop free-to-play mobile games that make people laugh.

In my spare time, I enjoy overlanding and off-roading, as well as woodworking, cooking and electronics projects.
