My career

I worked 👨‍💻 at IBM for +10 years, now working at the spin-off called Kyndryl +2 years. I am passionate about the technical world but, trying not to lose the business view.

Currently I'm an Chief Enterprise Architect* in an outsourcing contract, serving to an international Telco company (+5 years on this position). I manage infrastructure architectures which includes: Data Centers architectures, Networking, Compute and Storage. I work with DCs on-prem, where together with the account team, I have designed and built a private cloud based on Red Hat OpenStack, Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Virtualization and Ceph, among other projects. I also work with public clouds as AWS and IBM Cloud. Currently I'm working on process/task automation with solutions like Ansible, and designing a Kubernetes Vanilla platform.

I have had different roles in my life: business intelligence tech specialist, big data tech specialist, and natural language processing tech specialist. I also worked with IBM Watson solutions (creating chatbots, understanding documents with IA, training watson machine learning models, etc).

I belong to the Association of Enterpise Architects (chapter of Spain), where I help as a member.

I'm one of the organizers of the Meetup called Big Data Developers in Madrid, with more than 4250 members.

My life

I was born in Madrid, Spain. Although I have been in a lot of countries, I live in Madrid. My life revolves around my wife (which I admire every day) and our children (including our fluffy dog 🐶).

I enjoy taking landscape pictures with my Sony 𝜶6600 camera. Lately I really enjoy making short videos of my travels, and editing them.
