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.
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.
If I had to sum myself up in three words...
To my friends:
Trustworthy, Fun and at times refreshingly spontaneous.
To my colleagues:
Adaptable, Committed and willing to give new things a try.
Technical know how...
What else I can do:
Knowledge of SEO and Google Analytics.
5+ years of IT and English teaching.
I am a bilingual Spanish/English speaker.
I have experience as an Innovation Consultant.
The following companies and institutions have formed the stepping stones for my professional development to date:
Who i have worked for:

Where i have studied:
BA International Business
BA International Business

What i am working on now:
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.
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.
The following are examples of my work. The programs utilized are indicated above each section:
The following represent my mid-term objectives on three very important levels: Professional, Personal and Friends and Family:
On one hand:
My first objective is to form an important part of a professional team, dedicated to Online Services and/or Digital Content Development.
On the other:
Failing this, I would like to see myself embark on a solo project within the industry.
The thrill of new experiences:
Assuring personal economic stability will allow me to comfortably invest in what excites me the most...adventure sports, healthy living and most importantly travelling; visiting breathtaking locations in excellent company.
Friends and Family...
Strike a balance:
Friends and family are, in my case, what you could describe as disperse. Each and every member is extremely valuable to me and up until now, I have often found that life is a trade-off between the quest for personal/professional fulfilment, and possessing the means by which to be present for loved ones when necessary. With this in mind, my immediate goal is to ensure professional stability, and strike a much needed balance between professional and personal responsibilities.
