In June, 2023, I joined the incredible Prisms team as a technical content creator,
helping create explainer video assets in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemsitry and
These videos help kids get around the game and understand complex concepts in an accessible,
Around March, 2023 I created the Design Bits
channel, to talk about computational design. Much of the influence I've gathered from past
experiences can be easily picked up in this project.
We discuss the inner workings of the tools designers use daily in a hopefully
accessible and attractive manner.
Graphic Design, Video Production, Music Production and Programming are
disciplines that I want to keep as close to my heart as possible. This channel is a
successful attempt at doing so. Every asset, animation, song or sound effect is created
from scratch, in my room. Being able to control the interplay between all the elements makes
me incredibly happy.
'22 Google Summer of Code
Google Summer of Code Contributor
In June, 2022 I proposed the Processing Foundation –through the GSOC program– a very
important change to the p5.js library that had been asked for ages: native GIF export.
The p5.js community is largely stablished in Twitter, where GIF sharing
was the main way for artists to show their works in progress, as well as the finished
But GIF exporting was very cumbersome, usually requiring the user to download every single
frame as a png for later composition, or using tools that either did not work properly or needed
an unreasonable amount of setup.
I am very proud to say that we managed to create this feature and make it as easy as it's ever
been to download a GIF from your sketch.
Art Direction & Animation Engineering
My journey as a freelancer was blessed when I joined the Reducible
youtube channel as an Art Director and Animator. Nipun, the creator and
founder of the channel, gave me the most welcoming time and we formed a team to improve
the channel from the ground up.
This project really holds a special place in
my heart, since I was so early in my career but still, he trusted me and allowed me to
explore and exploit all the possibilities. No judgement, no bullshit, just vibes and code.
Helped develop a clearer brand identity to the channel, helping it stand out
among a rapidly growing community of educational math channels.
Animation engineering comes from the fact that all animations were made through code.
I guess every role?
In September, 2021 I started my career as a freelancer. I had just come out of my masters
and had absolutely no idea nor properly developed skill. The only thing I had clear was to
avoid joining some generic big corporation to do lame stuff as hard as I possibly could.
During this time, I worked with the
Veritasium team as an animation engineer,
making mathematical animations in Manim. This
would shape the rest of my career as I would choose this path onwards and specialize in
this branch of content creation.
I also started my career as a design engineer, something I didn't know at
the time. I started tinkering with Next.js and Svelte and made some websites for fun and
for my local university.
MSc Data Science
Masters in Data Science @ University of Granada
Got my masters in Data Science through the year of 2020. Learned that you won't need much
more than a simple linear regression in 90% of the cases you have to estimate some data. I
also got a lot into data visualization and design.
BSc Computer Science
Bachelors in Computer Science @ University of Jaén
From 2016 through 2020 I completed my degree in Computer Science. I didn't have a great
time during the first years, I was really bad at algorithms, math and hardcore
programming in general. It wouldn't be until 3rd year that I started to take off and enjoy
Today I can very confidently say that programming, algorithms and math make me very happy.
Not an obvious choice, but probably the right one.
I basically started playing guitar
At some point during the summer of 2013 I managed to convice mom to buy me a guitar.
Sometime later I started attending guitar lessons from one of the most incredible teachers
I will ever know, Yeye.
Like many other things, this would completely fill up my mind and change my entire
life, but I didn't know that yet.
