Open Source Software Consultant and Research Manager with excellent English. Years of experience in international R&D project management and good social and communication skills. Experienced lecturer and passionate about free culture and web 2.0.
I also keep strong links with the motorcycling touring industry and I can definitely help anyone interested in motorcycle travelling too, specially in Southamerica and Spain ;)
Since 2012 I am a fully qualified Spanish Language Teacher.
As part of my duties in Igalia, I went to CES2012 and Computex2012 to build partnership relations and find customers for the company. I coordinated a big web page revamp and took part in the marketing and communications strategy of the company. I also represented the company in R&D events and consortia while looking for funding for research activities.
Motorcycle travel around Iceland with some friends as part of my summer holidays.
At the end of the year I left Igalia and attended a course at the International House Madrid school to become a fully qualified Spanish Language Teacher.
I started working for Igalia, a very special company full of interesting people. My main duties included R&D management and coordination of our master in Free Software. Also taking care of the public relations of the company, generating contents for the web page and meeting with press and customers.
I worked full time from my home office in Madrid.
Enjoyed last few subjects at grad school. Always trying to choose those related to communications and systems, such as Design of Operating Systems, Advanced Computer Networks or Technologies and Services for Internet Applications. Specially liked subjects by the GSyC department at URJC.
Started to work in final degree project, which involved testing IPSec tunnelling with FreeS/Wan, the first implementation of IPSec for Linux.
Decided to continue studying at grad school in order to complete a full engineering degree.
Using FLOSS exclusively by that time already familiar with FLOSS communities, products and processes.
Linux power user, (started in back in 1998 with Red Hat 5.1).
Earned a degree in technical computer engineering at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. In Spain, this is a short-cycle (3 years) undergraduate degree that makes you eligible to become a full chartered engineer after further studies.
Final degree project was a video filter for the detection of movement in video scenes based in optical flow computing. C++ programming, mainly.
Ok, I think that is enough. I was just a stupid kid!! Didn't do much more... go to class, try to attract attention from girls and play hacky sack with my friends...
