About Me

Hey! I am Alex and I am passionate about video games and computing since a very young age. I am from Spain where I got a Computer Science background and then lived in the UK for 5 years where I got awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science with Second Class Honours(1st Division) in Computer Games Programming at Teesside University.

I am a keen technologist with a passion for the future of creative games development, seeking new and interesting ways to use programming to create amazing games.

I love what I do so apart of my job I’m always on the lookout for new exciting technologies meanwhile trying to learn and improve my skills by doing my own projects and publishing a few games on Google Play.

When I am not working on code, you’ll find me enjoying some of my hobbies like music, sports or of course gaming.

If you want to know more about me you can get in contact at any of the social media I have on this web.
