If your product, service and idea were born with the goal of improving the lives of others, then its success is guaranteed! Adding a well planned strategy, passion, creativity and hard work ensures its success. For me, Operations is not a department in a company but an attitude and a passion that has filled my career with challenges and allowed me to launch companies and improve businesses.
Dad of two and science lover. I´m a life-long learner and I like to share learning with others. I believe security is a intrinsic quality of good software, from design to implementation, not only a patch at the end of a process. It´s a continuous set of tradeoffs that Bussiness and IT should make together. I began my career as a C++ developer and I have been working in IT Security for more than 10 years. My experience goes from threat monitoring in different SOC´s, AppSec consulting services and implementing process to automate security into the SDLC. I am a big fan of Baroque music and I also enjoy reading and writing SciFi stories. Sometimes I run to clear my mind.
Born and raised in the New York of La Mancha, Albacete. Java and Groovy codebasher by calling. Environmental activist out of necessity. Lover of homemade stews. Retired drummer. Basketball fan and cyclist. Half classic geek: loud heavy metal music, coffee, GNU/Linux and The X-Files. Half not-so-classic geek: I’m not into gadgets, nor do I play Pokemon GO and I don’t watch TV series. I prefer to be surrounded by nature and my dream is to live in a country house with a vegetable garden.
I started my career with a passion for analysing and solving problems in Java; and have applied this knowledge by working in a number of different business areas. In my free time I’ve also explored the world of Big Data and R, which I’m looking forward to applying to software security management. On a personal note, I’m an Asianophile and one of my personal goals is to become a decent Baduk player.
I’ve been coding Java for 7 years and in my spare time enjoy researching technologies like Android, Ruby, Amazon Web Services and tinkering with Arduinos. When I’m not immersed in technology, I love cooking traditional Spanish food and am a movie and TV series addict.
I am a dedicated office administrator to assist the directors and managers as well as deliver internal reporting, document editing and other office tasks. After studying Mathematics and Physics I spent several years living abroad and improved my language skills starting in USA, Austria, Germany and finally landed in Spain. In my previous life I have worked for a unique logistic provider as well as an HR manager. I was responsible for more than 350 employees, covering all HR tasks. Although numbers are my passion I enjoy working with great people, and IriusRisk’s team definitely is amazing! When not in front of the computer, I enjoy spending time in nature, especially in the garden with my fabulous pets.

My passion for technology started in the early ages when I used to solve puzzles on my parent’s computer. I quickly got interested in all aspects of computer science.

After almost ten years of working in both development and system administration, now I’ve focused my career in the management of cloud infrastructures and the automatization and optimization of all kind of processes. When I’m not at my desk I’m usually at the mountains (trekking, climbing, snowboarding…) or skydiving.
