Originally from Madrid, Spain, I moved to the US in 1998. I call Virginia home.
I have lived in Europe (Spain, Portugal), Central America (only exception Guatemala), and North America (USA).
My professional life followed two parallel paths, hardly one without the other. I am also a cook whom others usually refer to as a chef.
I like football (also American), reading (when possible), good nutrition, exercising, all sort of movies, and music.
I believe in technology. I believe in Open Source.
I dropped out of college after my sophomore year. I had chosen Religion as my major but realized, perhaps for the better, that I had made a mistake. That was 1976 and I had just married my first wife.
In 1983 I tried to register for Fortran classes. I wanted to learn how to program those machines people talked about. But I was discourage to take programming lessons; I was told that there was a need for data entry personnel way more than there was for programmers. Not for me!
Finally, in 1987 I could afford to buy a brand new 8086 with a green phosphorus monitor. And a programming book. COBOL, not less! Three months later I sold my first program.
