I love creating software and teaching how to be more successful.

Currently, I work at Xing creating software for millions of people. I've worked in other big and successful companies like Softonic, Honda or Fnac creating websites, apps, designs, and software.

I really enjoy teaching people new skills so they can improve their lives.

All my life I've been surrounded by computers. As a child, my father - who was a programmer back then - introduced me to the world of computing, which marked me forever. Years later, after hours and hours in front of computers, I am dedicated to my passion: code.

I try to do my best to achieve the best result day by day.
