Software developer. Social entrepreneur on the make.

About me

I live between three worlds. English, German, Spanish. Or technical, social and personal. Or my girlfriend, my daugther and myself.

It's not an easy task to keep focused when you are passionate about lots of stuff, so my way is to keep calm whatever happens and enjoy the trip of life anytime.
