Claudio is based in Santiago, Chile and speaks Spanish and English.
He is experienced at free software licensing, fundamental rights and freedom of expression on the digital environment. After being his executive director for more than eight years, he is on the board of Derechos Digitales, a digital rights non-profit that works to promote, defend and develop rights and civil liberties in the digital environment in Latin America. He hosts a radio show in Chile, he has a dog called Flora, loves indie rock, coffee and ride his bike, specially on mornings.
