Hello

from Monterey, California — October 28, 2019

I’m Ricardo Del Toro, and I’m taking time off to figure out what’s next for me. Before this phase of my life, I designed software and worked on a lot of cool and interesting products. However, it was time to do something different, something outside of the Silicon Valley product design bubble that continuously focuses on metrics, invasive data collection practices and harms our society through the spread of misinformation. I want to remain in tech but in a different capacity and one that allows me to stay in the city that I love so much, Monterey, CA. Since taking time off from design, the quality of my life has increased substantially and I get to enjoy this gorgeous area. I’m now back in school, attending Monterey Peninsula College with the intent to transfer to Cal State Monterey Bay.
