About Me

I was born and raised in Barcelona, and I studied at the American School of Barcelona. I moved to Buenos Aires in 2000, where I began my engineering studies at ITBA. The 2002 Argentine Economic Crisis brought me back to Barcelona, where I completed my Telecommunications Engineering degree at Telecom BCN, part of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. On 2017, I graduated from IESE Business School, where I earned my Executive MBA degree.

In 2014 I joined the Zurich Insurance Group - Barcelona Technology Delivery Center as an IT Manager, after 5 years working as an IT Consultant at everis.

Why st5.org?

In short: nothing special. I registered this domain in 2004, back when revealing your real identity on the Internet had not yet been made popular by Mark Zuckerberg, and I just wanted it to be as short as possible. All 2-letter and 3-letter domains were already registered at the time, so I searched for other options and found that st5.org was free. Over time, I found out that it is also the name of a protein and a NASA project!
