I am a Software Engineer with DevOps experience that is always eager to learn, create solutions, perfecting my skills and taking on challenges. Living in The Netherlands since 2019, born 23/12/1996 in Spain.

I mostly program in Haskell, Scala, Python, SQL, Nix, Shell and the occasional other. Given the choice I prefer to design software using the functional programming paradigm. My storage engine experience revolves around PostgreSQL, MariaDB, ElasticSearch, OracleSQL, NoSQL DBs like BigTable, Redis, MongoDB, Firebase.

I love the Ops side of the projects and platforms too. To say I am a Nix and GNU/Linux enthusiast is an understatement. I like distributed tracing, infrastructure-as-code, CI/CD, type-safe languages and functional programming.

I love to create solutions of high quality and reliability, constantly improving, automating workflows, creating fast and solid programs, helping and teaching others and to express myself via my creations.

I love playing classical and electric guitar.

I like building computers out of wood and other materials, blogging about my tech opinions and discoveries and playing strategy games sometimes.

You might also find me doing CrossFit, sanding furniture down, removing weeds from the garden, or improving my house.
