Growing up with a family in the restaurant industry, Esteban began to realize he preferred the analytical side of business. In college, he worked alongside the company’s bookkeeper, learning how to manage finances for his parents’ Chinese restaurant. Esteban received his undergrad degree from UTSA, graduating cum laude. He’s on track to sit for the CPA exam in 2019.

Esteban was born in Peru and came to the U.S. when he was 11 years old. He says his competitive nature pushed him to learn a new language quickly. Nowadays, we see that same competitive nature when he’s faced with a new technical challenge…or during office ping pong tournaments!

Esteban’s hobbies include reading, building complex Lego sets, model sets, and puzzles. He’s always up for a challenge in the kitchen and is proud of his recent culinary accomplishment -mastering a creamy risotto that’s no joke.
