You've found my spot on the internet that's all about me. I put together this little site to show off my work and keep track of my various projects.


Welcome. My name is Leo Suarez and I’m a software engineer living in Raleigh, North Carolina. If you haven’t met me before, let me start off by saying that I love Raleigh! On one hand, I do software QA for IHS Markit. On the other, I’m a passionate citizen advocate for the downtown Raleigh area.

At IHS Markit, I help ensure stability against new features, product improvements, and integrations from the front-end UI and our API services. I’m a big fan of the agile methodology as well as writing test cases in behavior-driven formats to ensure understanding across product, test, and development.

Around Raleigh, I’ve found my voice in telling the story of the downtown revitalization. Written and photographed by me for over seven years now, The Raleigh Connoisseur is a website that follows the city’s challenge of growth and how to embrace urbanity. A hobby and passion project, the site has become a distinct part of my identity.
