Currently working as a database administrator for the Wikimedia Foundation, I have worked for the private (MySQL A.B., Sun Microsystems, Oracle, Percona, Zend, Activision-Blizzard, Twitter, EBay, Telefónica) and public sector (BBC, CERN, Spanish government) and as a freelance contractor as a consultant, system administrator, remote DBA and technical trainer, among others.
My IT skills include:

I currently hold the following certifications:
I can speak English, Spanish & French. Trying to learn German at the time.
Born in 1983 in Logroño, Spain, I moved to Zaragoza in 2001 to study computer engineering. I work now as a full-time MySQL DBA back in Logroño.
In my free time I contribute to projects like Wikipedia and OpenStreetMap, as I am an advocate of the free software and open data movements. I also love photography, cycling, astronomy (stargazing), reading (fantasy and good science fiction) and theater (mainly, acting myself).
