Who am I?

Born in 1981 in Santiago de Compostela and lived in the four provinces of Galicia (Spain).

Having spent my teens in the beautiful city of Lugo, where I went to High School, I moved out to A Coruña in 2000 to study Computer Science Engineering.

There, I started working at Igalia back in late 2005 through an internship. I became an employee in early 2006 and finally turned into a partner of the company in October 2010.

After working in different kind of projects throughout those years, I´ve spent most of my time from 2010 until late 2012 hacking on WebKitGTK+ (the port of the WebKit web engine to the GTK+ platform) as part of Igalia´s WebKit team, by helping to improve accessibility support for ATK/AT-SPI based Assistive Technologies and to define and implement the new WebKit2GTK+ API.

In early 2013 I moved to the lovely town of Staines in the UK to join the Smart TV team in Samsung Research UK and, after almost one year in the company, I moved to Samsung’s Open Source Group in November 2013, where I worked as a part of a team focused on contributing upstream to the WebKit and Blink projects.

In August 2014, I left Samsung and joined Endless as a member of the core team in order to help creating a new kind of operating system specifically aimed at providing access to technology for the next billion people in the developing world: Endless OS.

Additionally, I’m a member of the GNOME Foundation and the lead developer of a simple -yet powerful- flickr uploader for the GNOME desktop called frogr, which I work on in my spare time.

You can find more details about my past and present work in the Work and Talks sections in this website, as well as in my profile at LinkedIn.

Last, and besides work related stuff, I love spending my spare time with my family and friends, travelling, listening to music and taking pictures, among other things
