Luis has been one of the Colombian Team most supportive members. He's always active at the mailing lists and at the irc channel. I firmly believe that Luis deserves his membership as a commited member of the Ubuntu communitiy, not only at a local level but at global level too. -- AndresMujica

Luis provides tremendous IRC help & guidance to new or advanced Ubuntu users likewise. I admire his patience! He's very visible in local events in Quebec province too. -- FabianRodriguez
