Software engineer, Free Software & Open Source advocate, photography aficionado, music lover and runner.


I’m a software engineer from Galicia with a passion for Open Source and Free Software in general, and for Linux-based Operating Systems in particular. My first contact with computers was in the late 80’s with a ZX Spectrum from my uncle and then with my beloved Amstrad CPC 464, which was the only computer I had until I got my first PC in 1996. I installed my very first Linux distribution on that PC in 1998 and I’ve been a passionate Linux user and developer ever since, making a living out of such passion since 2006 when I graduated with a MSc in Computer Science. Besides tinkering with computers, I also love music, photography, travelling and running. But above all things, I love my family.
