About me

Boris Barreto, CEO, Red Dog Engineering

The simplest ideas can often make the best innovations

With a solid foundation in electrical engineering, both academically and professionally, I’ve always been drawn to the intricate dance between software and hardware. My journey began in the structured world of electrical engineering, where I honed my skills and developed a keen understanding of the intricacies of electronics. But it was my passion for programming and hardware design that truly ignited my drive.

Today, I channel that drive into transforming ideas into tangible projects, with a particular emphasis on automation of equipment. For me, automation represents the perfect blend of my expertise: it’s where electrical circuits meet lines of code, culminating in innovations that can revolutionize processes and industries.

I stand for innovation, precision, and the relentless pursuit of turning imaginative concepts into real-world solutions. Dive into my portfolio to see where we’re heading.
