Skills

I am really lucky, I am one of those persons that would survive anything. Over the years I have learned to do and fix everything. If something breaks I fix it. Why buy something new if it can be fixed. This kind of personality moves you toward a path where you want to keep learning even if you left school a long time ago. That is why when it was time to pick my future profession I chose to pick three different professions instead of one.

Computer Engineer

This was my first choice. In the summer of 2006 I was accepted at the Valencia Politechnic University, over the next 5 years I studied and learn how to develop software for computers. During the last year I specialized in Web Development, which is my current job. I consider myself a back end developer with a one particular skill. I can learn and start programming in a new system in a few days as I did in 2013 when I had to learn Typo3 CMS in order to start developing and maintaining websites.

Vehicle Maintenace Technician

I got my Driving Licence back in 2007, at that moment I wasn't really interested in vehicles besides the fascination on how the engine works. But once I started driving an interested started to appear, an interest in learning how understanding, fixing, maintaining and improve everything on a vehicle. On September 2009 I started my studies in Vehicle Maintenance while I was still studying on the University. During two years I studied Vehicle Maintenance during the mornings and Computer Engineering during the afternoons. During my first year I bought an Honda Civic which was my car and my experience for the next 4 years. In 2011 after finishing the course I got an internship in Dublin which lasted 3 amazing months.

Industrial Maintenance Technician

After finishing my internship in Dublin and my degree I started working as a self employed Web Developer but even with that I wanted to learn more so I started a course on Industrial Maintenance. After the first year of the course a teacher offered me to work with his CHP company for the summer. And I have to say, working with 10 tones engines is one of the best jobs I ever had. This job lasted during the second year of the course instead of being only a summer job.
