My name is Samuel Felipe Sotillo and I was born and raised in Venezuela. I used to be an engineer and worked for many years as a Network Analyst and System Administrator before making the transition to teaching and the Humanities.


Recent research interests include: digital publishing, the use of digital technologies in the Humanities, Venezuelan literature.

I am the digital curator for the Venezuelan Literature Project. Still a work in progress, the VLP is intended to be a digital repository for everything related to Venezuela's literature, films, and arts.
