About Me

I’m Paulo Orquillo aka “lopau”, this is my personal blog and playground. I’m a creative technical guy with a knack for getting things done.

A self-taught designer and developer. Started as a graphics artist way back in 1999 when I got my first gig by joining a logo contest and winning it. I then started a side hustle of offering graphic design services. I further grew my skills learning HTML, CSS, Javascript and creating Flash animations. As I progressed I eventually evolved into a web developer acquiring skills in Linux, PHP, MySQL, AWS, and Javascript.

With a lucky break, I got hired in a company in Dubai as a remote web developer, and during that time I came across Salesforce. Adding Salesforce as a skill proved to be the most valuable thing as there was a high demand for this skill. Now I’m working as a Salesforce Technical Consultant for a leading Salesforce Partner in Auckland, New Zealand.

I’m 17x Salesforce Certified, meaning I have a bunch of certifications. I’m also an integration junkie and passionate about building system integrations. I’m Boomi and Mulesoft certified.


I keep my web skills up-to-date by learning and trying new stuff. Like web scraping with Python, building websites with Django, or building Alexa skills, dabbling with Node.js, Express, AWS, Google Cloud Compute, and building IOS mobile apps with SwiftUI.

On the personal side, I’m a happily married guy with a loving wife and father to 4 daughters. I’m into personal finance, investing,  reading books, on a mission of building different passive incomes, traveling, tasting different kinds of beer, snowboarding, photography, mountain bikes, motorbikes and I love keeping my body fit by doing calisthenics exercise.

Always looking for opportunities to learn, collaborate, and improving my skills.

I have a Youtube channel where I upload “howto” tech stuff tutorials. Check it out and subscribe Just Another Dang How To Channel also check my merch for sale.
