A bit about me

I was born in Madrid, Spain in 1990 and brought up in beautiful Ireland until the age of three. After that we moved to a lovely town called Hornchurch in Essex, London, where we lived for roughly 10 years. During this time I attended St. Mary's Primary School before moving on to Campion Secondary School. At the age of 13 my parents decided to move to Malaga, Spain to be closer to my mother's family and to start a business: Malaga Law Solicitors. In Spain I completed secondary School and college in I.E.S. Sierra de Mijas, and went on to study industrial engineering at the University of Malaga.

Due to this unique upbringing I am lucky enough to be fluent in English and Spanish, which has proven to be very useful during my years at university as I became a private English teacher, helping both children and adults obtain official Cambridge certificates and to improve their conversation and writing skills.

Interests & hobbies

From an early age I have been interested in computers and everything technological. One of my fondest memories is from christmas when I was around 8 years old, I wanted to get a printer so I could print things off my father's work laptop. Instead, I got a whole computer! I couldn't beleive it, I had a tower, monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse all for me! During my teenage years one of my favourite things to do would be to download a program and learn how to use it. Thanks to this innate sense of curiosity I learnt how to edit photos and videos, create graphic designs and even build websites like this one.

Outside of computers and technologies I also enjoy practicing sport, and have done throughout my life. From around 4 years old I took swimming lessons, participated in competitions and played badmington in the Sport Centre in Hornchurch. Later on I played football for Jets F.C. football club and practiced rugby while at Campion Secondary School. In Spain, I like to play padel or basketball with friends and go out running regularly.

I am an avid film and series watcher, video game player and book reader. Some of my favourites are: A Beautiful Mind & Drive (films), Breaking Bad & The Office (series), Metal Gear & Xcom (video games), and The Martian & the Artemis Fowl series (books).
