Mariano is one of our Co-Founders, a 17 year veteran of the internet industry, avid traveler and Mac and Cheese connoisseur. Originally from Mendoza Argentina, Mariano moved to Buenos Aires 18 years ago where he met Andy in film school and eventually founded BracketMedia.
Mariano is our go-to for all things tech, serving as our unofficial CTO over the years and helping keep us on the cutting edge of today’s web development practices. Not only is he first to fly out when our clients need him, he never misses a chance to meet up with friends Stateside for a good music festival.
The other half of the dynamic duo that founded BracketMedia, Andy has always been comfortable at the helm. This is only natural, as his true passion is sailing. If you don’t find Captain Andy on his computer saving the day for one of our clients, he’s probably out at sea with his trusty sailboat “Atorrante 3” or petting his cat Fridi.
Always having a sharp eye for design, Andy serves as our Creative Director. Having studied advertising, photography and film, there is never a shortage of creativity when he’s around.
Our favorite Francesa on the team, Laura has been with BracketMedia for 4 years, having joined us shortly after her arrival to Buenos Aires from Paris. Since her arrival, she’s helped usher in a new chapter here at BracketMedia, having managed some of our biggest projects to date – including the development of the mega-project that is the new BuildTools system.
When she’s not working, you can always find her out dancing tango at a local “milonga” or out enjoying the thriving foodie scene here in Buenos Aires.
Will is the team’s American-Argentine. Originally from Atlanta Georgia, he has lived here in Buenos Aires for the past 10 years now. Looking after many of our new projects as well as some of our key clients with maintenance plans such as One World Play Project and EUE/Screengems, you can always count on him to bring a bit of humor to every interaction.
When not at work, you can find him DJing his favorite new hip hop/R&B jams around the city, hunting for the perfect burger, or playing fútbol with his friends.
Connie is our only homegrown Project Manager, born and raised in Buenos Aires. After a 9 year stint studying in Colorado where she perfected her English and Journalism skills, she recently moved back to the motherland to be closer to family and continue her career in web. An aspiring writer, you rarely find her short on words.
When Connie isn’t at the office, you can find her working on her next travel plans, out and about enjoying one of Argentina’s famous wine tastings, or playing with her lovely dog Bernard.
BracketMedia’s newest Project Manager Brit comes all the way from Texas, where she honed her skills in Spanish as a medical interpreter and language teacher. Her love for Spanish eventually inspired her to study abroad in Argentina 7 years ago, a move that saw her fall in love with the country and later decide to make Buenos Aires her home indefinitely. Her eagerness to learn and attention to detail has made her a great fit for our growing project management team.
When Brit isn’t in the office, you can find her dancing salsa, exploring Buenos Aires’s many hidden treasures or hanging out in one of her favorite coffee shops.
Ariel is Bracket’s Chief Technical Officer and our go to for our most complex projects. An early bloomer, he got started programming at just 16 years old and hasn’t looked back since. He’s plied his trade across the world, with stints in USA, Holland, Spain, Germany, and Hong Kong to name a few. With over 30 years of web experience, he has quickly become a valuable asset to the team.
A man of many talents, Ariel is also a tactical shooting trainer, having won 3 national championships with military firearms. When not working, you can find him whipping up one of his famous recipes or enjoying his other hobby of riding and watching superbikes.
Lucio joins us from Trenque Lauquen, or as we like to call it: where the magic happens. A natural problem solver, he has been our lead developer for over 8 years now, having had his hands on our biggest projects to date. Between his vast experience as a developer and his sharp eye for design, he’s proved to be a crucial part of our team.
When he’s not moving digital mountains for our clients, you can find him spending time with his family or enjoying the great outdoors – camping and snapping photos of the beautiful Argentine landscapes.
Ale joins the team from Mbopicuá – Capioví Misiones (Say that 3x fast.) He’s been with the company 7 years now and has firmly established himself as one of our most talented CSS/HTML developers. Currently Ale is focusing on the new BuildTools system, having written all of the html for this mega project that looks set to release early next year.
When Ale isn’t busy exceeding expectations with his immaculate coding, he enjoys spending his free time with his daughter, walking his dog and playing paddel with friends.
Guille is the team’s lead designer, bringing 15+ years of experience and creativity to the mix. A constant source of creativity for us, he most recently redesigned our site (yes this one) and is currently wrapping up the epic redesign for our friends at ACE Rafting, among others.
His love for design doesn’t stop when he logs off. He is also an avid tattoo lover, a culture that has helped inspire him creatively both on and offline. When not working, you can find him spending time with his family, cruising around town on his bike or camping with friends.
Junio is the team’s Brazilian PHP wizard, having joined Bracketmedia in 2018 after his cruise of Latin America saw him deciding to switch Brazil for Argentina. With over 11 years of experience as a PHP Developer, there’s no challenge too big for Junio. His love for learning new languages and technologies keeps him up to date with the latest methods, something that has made him one of our go-to developers for our most complex projects.
When he isn’t rolling out new code and problem solving, you can find him rollerblading with friends or enjoying a good cup of coffee.
Born in Buenos Aires, Meli has been a part of the BracketMedia team for 8 years now. Throughout this time she has become our go-to for complex coding, API’s and more.
When not putting out digital fires and providing high quality code for our most complex projects, you can find her watching one of her favorite series or enjoying an asado with friends and family.
One of the few Buenos Aires natives on the team, Lucas joined us 6 years ago. An excellent WordPress developer, his motto is: Every Problem Has a Solution, something he backs up with his results.
Working alongside Lucio and Meli, Lucas is part of our WordPress developement team. When not hard at work, you can find him playing video games or enjoying a classic Argentine asado with friends.
Brian is another homegrown talent born and raised here in Buenos Aires. One of the newest additions to our growing dev team, he’s been working in systems the last 4 years and has been a key player in some of our trickiest builds this year.
When not making code he’s probably making music, with his most recent passion being the drums. He also loves to go out with his friends, whether it’s enjoying a pint with his craft beer group, role playing in the park or just exploring new places in the city.
Elias is the youngest member of the BracketMedia family. Born in Buenos Aires, he is now working in Trenque Lauquen getting jedi training from master Lucio as he learns the in’s and out’s of our digital procedures. His extreme attention to detail makes him a QA rockstar, never leaving a stone unturned.
In his spare time Eli likes to teach himself new skills on youtube, listen to music and enjoy his favorite tripe stew.
Facu is the newest member of the Bracket Media team, hailing from Trenque Lauquen, our coder hub outside of the city. He is currently studying Systems Engineering and mastering his craft with our very own QA Master Elias, forming a dynamic duo the likes of which Bracket has never seen before.
When he’s not meticulously combing through sites and ensuring BracketMedia’s relentless commitment to quality control, you very well could catch him enjoying a nice asado, playing futbol, or most likely singing and playing the guitar for his instagram followers.
