Profesional Profile

I am a Software Engineer. I started during my studies to develop iOS applications as a hobby. I now have 10 years of experience with iOS frameworks.

After my Bachelor in Computer Science, I was really interested in Systems and low-level software. That's why I chose to do a master in Distributed Systems and Applications .

Today, what really gets me moving is developing frameworks or middle-ware software libraries, system related software, iOS applications and start-ups!
