About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I save lives with video games. My partner and I are launching Picoso Games, a startup that solves problems with entertainment and virtual reality.

ABOUT ME

My name is Javier Rayón. I love great stories and solving humanity's grand challenges, such as human aging, poverty, and war. In order to do so I'm applying entertainment, arts, and innovation.

Right now I'm focused on finishing my video game design degree and launching our startup. I also look forward to meeting more entrepreneurial people who want to have a global impact.

My mission is now leading me to San Francisco. I was invited to VRX, a virtual reality gathering with some of the best in the industry.

PHILOSOPHY

You live only once. Spare no Cheetos.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I edited the first national security policy for Felipe Calderón, the president of Mexico, when I was 16.

I studied with one of the world's foremost experts in innovation, Dr. Guillermo Aguirre, from MIT.

I met Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder. It was kind of a big deal, considering he's the father of both the personal computer and my favorite organization.

A girl and I went ghostbusting in Denmark.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to teach a few salsa tricks, I'm learning myself. I also adore writing, I would be happy to help you create an amazing story. I can also showcase virtual reality.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Salsa. Great stories. Virtual reality!
