In May 1995 when I had a phone call to be a Localization Tester of Spanish for Microsoft as part of a Translation vendor ... At that time I did not know what Localization was, neither what a vendor was, luckily I knew who Microsoft was and I also knew Spanish :) That was enough at that point to start my career in this incredible industry.
I've been in this field for over 20 years and I'm fascinated for the challenges it presents and how rich it is!
During these years I was fortunate enough to work for great companies such as Lionbridge, EA or King. I performed different roles during all this time and I learned a lot in my journey. A journey that keeps moving forward! I'm not only interested in Localization, video games or project management, but also in public speaking! Since I joined Toastmasters organization late 2015 I feel that I have discovered a brand new world full of possibilities. I belong to Diagonal Mar TM in Barcelona where I collaborate as VP of Public Relations, which is fancy name, but ultimately it just means that you can drop me an email if you are interested in attending as a guest in one of our bi-monthly sessions.
My original background is Computer Engineer, and somehow I recycled myself. Because at the beginning of my career I worked a programmer, yes, 22 years ago we were named programmers, no developers :) and I did also a Master in Human Resource and I pursued my PMP certification. This helped to make a career change from technical roles to management roles.
If you read any interesting book lately please drop me an email! specially if it was in the management, public speaking area. I'm always looking for new material to read, I'm quite an avid reader, I read a book per week. I travel quite often so I have time to read and books are a great way to make my trips very enjoyable and also it helps to be in continuos learning mode.
Everything that I express here are my thoughts and my opinion, and is likely that I am totally wrong!
