  • Paola Castro


    (She/hers) All the way from Nicaragua, Paola is here to solve all your software-ing/suffering. Originally trained as a scientist, Paola published a first-author article in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Check out this 1 minute summary of the study which concludes alcohol is good for you … if you responsibly extrapolate research done on worms to humans ;). Paola loves laughing so much that she performed stand-up comedy at several open mics around San Francisco. She even got booked on a couple of showcases. She finds her zen in the ocean, surfing, or on the dance floor, dancing bachata for San Francisco’s very own inessence.
