ABOUT ME

Allow me to barely introduce myself:

Where am I from?

I was born and raised in Bath, a city in the UK, the exact location of which you can see on the map to the right (above if you are using a mobile device). The city is famous for it's Roman Baths, spectacular architecture and natural beauty.

Currently?

After graduating in International Business, I moved to the island of Tenerife, where I am pursuing a future in the fields of E-commerce and Responsive Web Development.

More details about me

I am bilingual in Spanish and passionate about new technologies, especially the part that creativity plays in technological development. Although I am currently working as a cofounder on a project named FastTyping Online, in which we have revolutionised Touch-Typing via web technologies, making it more accessible to all audiences, I also continue to promote myself as a Full-Stack Web Developer and Graphic Designer, whilst I study Mobile App Development. Examples of projects I have worked on will be on display later in this portfolio. Generally speaking, I have enormous appreciation for the subtleties of modern design and the freedom it provides for creatively fearless designers. Personally, I always try to leave a touch of my own identity in the work I produce, also applying my knowledge of graphic design or audio-visual development wherever possible. In my opinion, innovation is the key to success as it is no longer enough to simply “stick to what you are good at” and this is something I strive for on a daily basis.

What i am working on now:

Fasttyping

A new project together with Academia MAI. The first phase is based on the creation of a new touch typing platform for their classroom bases courses. The second, is focused on the automization and adaption of the platform, for an international, online market. Alongside the project, I am constantly working on the development of the accompanying corporate website, the creation of promotional material and the opening of new social network channels as part of the online marketing campaign.

php mysql

As my first project written in PHP/MySQL, I took full advantage to construct the platform in vanilla PHP 7. I now feel comfortable working in this language and hope to gain experience in PHP Frameworks soon.

This project has been fundamental in strengthening my knowledge. In particular, I would like to highlight the advanced use of Flexbox (CSS), JQuery and API's, along with the accompanying graphic and multimedia design.
