What was your first experience with the internet? What year was that?

My first experience on the internet was about 1998. A friend of mine had the latest model of a computer and installed dial-up internet. I couldn't believe all the things that I could do, like searching for things on Yahoo, opening an email account and downloading music!

Who you are? What are a few key points that make you, you?

I'm a music lover and I like to play guitar when I have the chance. I am very curious about how things work, I enjoy understanding and discovering the mechanisms that make things happen.

Where in the world do you like to work?

If I could choose, I would like to be in the mountains or near a forest, I am convinced that this type of landscape defeats stress.

What led you to work at Saucal?

I was looking for a career change and new challenges which lead to having the possibility to grow as a professional and as a person. Also, my former co-worker Christian worked here and put in a good word. :)

What is your favourite activity outside of work?

I enjoy building and repairing things in general, but especially wooden objects. I have some tools to work with wood, but at the moment my attempts at a chair did not yield good results. For more relaxed activities, I enjoy listening to music (in fact I have music on all day) and reading.

What is your favourite food/beverage?

For food, of course Asado (Argentinian BBQ), Pizza, Mexican food (tacos and burritos are the best). For beverages, I like wine, beer and fernet. If alcohol-free, I love regular coke
