Leisure time

Music, Videogames, Martial Arts, Paddle tennis, Movies, Drawings & sketchings, Internet, Comics, Other cultures, Ancient history....

I spend a lot of time drawing and painting, designing characters or concepts that -I hope-, someday will appear in some videogame. And obviously I like playing games. My favorites are Warcraft 3, Praetorians, Soldier of fortune, Call of duty and more. I love old games too, like Street Figther, Asteroids, Tetris 3d... Other field that I enjoy is the UI design, creating Flash games, research into interactivity, visual and sound Fx, typography, colour, textures...

Apart of that, I like real world too, and I have been playing different kinds of martial arts for more that twelve years. Starting when kid with Karate, and after Taekwondo (contestant), Kick-Boxing, and my favorite: Muay-Thai (Thai-Boxing). In this days I just play Kempo Kai, ride my mountain bike and play Paddle tennis when I can get 3 friends for a match.

Other love that I have, is music. I played bass for a few years in a hard rock band, but I think next time with free time, I will compose music with computer because the possibilities are much bigger.

About music my favorites are 70´s Rock bands, like Slade, Pink Floyd, Sweet, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin... But also love Iggy Pop, The Cult, ACDC, Suzi Quatro, Boston, Kiss, Judas Priest, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Van Halen, Zucchero, White Stripes, Rammstein, Ozzy Osbourne, Running Wild, Nightwish, H.I.M, Jane´s Adiction, The Clash, Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Aphrodite´s Child,...
There is a cavity in my heart for Electronic, Folk and Classical music. Bands like Erasure, Joachim Witt, The Chieftains, Youssou N´dour, Xabier Rudd... the list is endless. In Folk besides of Irish and Flamenco (Camarón) I like specially, greek music (Elefteria Arvanitaki and Kristi Stassinopoulou), and East Europe Folk Music, like Goran Gregovic.

Do I dance? Yes, I like Salsa from Puerto Rico, Colombia, Cuba... and also Brasilian music.

About travels, I have been in East Asia (Thailand), Europe (Spain obviously, France, England, Ireland, Croatia...), and Africa (Senegal, Gambia).
This year I will go to Perú.

I don´t smoke and I like choppers and retro cars. I like cooking and watch movies.

Personal self formation

I have learned most of the fields that I have mastered by myself. Studying or -mainly-working.
Drawing in different styles and techniques (Charcoal, Crayons, Pastel Chalk, Oil, Digital...)
Reading a thousand comics and illustration´s books. (Marvel, DC, European & Manga)
And learning about computer hardware (local networks, input and output
devices, Internet security, etc.) and finally about multimedia software.
Learning is the seed of life, so now I´m learning ZBRUSH 4R3 for making 3d sculptures and characters, and Indesign CS5.5 for interactive ebooks.
