Ragi was born and raised in Perú and currently lives in San Francisco.

He worked at ESRI (core GeoDatabase team) for several years before moving to Microsoft to work in games (Microsoft Flight Simulator). After moving to the Bay Area to learn more about entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, he fell in love with the startup community there.

Along the way, Ragi ran a successful GIS software consulting company and founded a venture-backed luxury fashion startup. He is currently working in the latest software company he founded (a mobile-based - iOS/Android - mapping application framework / service).

Ragi has contributed to GDAL (ArcObjects / FileGDB driver) as well as sprinkled patches throughout some of OSGeo's sponsored projects. He is an active member of the OSGeo CA chapter.
