Personal summary

Born in 1983 in Logroño, Spain, I moved to Zaragoza in 2001 to study computer engineering. I work now as a full-time SRE/DBA back in Logroño.

In my free time I contribute to projects like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap, as I am an advocate of the free software and open data movements. I also love photography, cycling, astronomy (stargazing), reading (fantasy and good science fiction) and theater (mainly, acting myself).
