ABOUT ME

You should meet me first

I am enthusiastic about IT and it is therefore natural that I directed my studies in this field. I attest to some experiences in the field of IT, especially as Quality Assurance Engineer. During work experience, I was introduced to projects such as testing applications, testing websites, building design and maintenance of web pages in WordPress, Confluence platform (administration and support of websites) as well as giving training to the users in different parts of the world,  I also have some experience as MySQL Database (design and maintenance),  and data visualization in a datamart called BioMart. 

I am passionate about animals, I love dogs, elephants and sea turtles, I grew up with dogs and have always had a love and appreciation for animals, so working with them made sense, I was a sea turtle volunteer in Karumbe (Uruguay). In the future I would like to have the opportunity to continue working with sea turtles and also with elephants.

My favorite sports are swinmming and soccer. My favorite soccer team is Chelsea F.C.
