About Me


Discover the New World


I travel searching for mountains that trigger my imagination, people that make me think differently, places where I can discover other cultures and ways of living.


I think live is more than work and create a family.


I'm interest on free software (linux and this odd computer things) and free culture, and how sharing knowledge can build up a better society. One of my main hobbies is hiking and climbing, I travel often searching for new mountains and valleys to explore.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hike around Andes.

To see the sunrise after a long freezing night walking, with your hands and feet in pain for the cold, tired by the lack of oxygen at 6000 mts and the long hours of non-stop activity, being unable to breath properly. At this moment feel the warm of the sun, see it reflecting on the ice of the glacier.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know about computres, mainly free software (linux and co), almost nothing about windows. I also know about free culture and copyleft.

I use to give talks about that.
