2011 Roadmap

As usual, I have been busy with all my professional and artistic activities. Right now I'm finishing my funky alternative band's first album with the independent producer Automata. We are in the final steps before sending the album to England for the masterization work. You can find more details in the band's page.

I have been also reading a lot of new and old books and I have been hearing that little voice in the back of my head telling me to start writing again. I used to write a lot of poetry and short tales when I was in high school studying literature and poetry. My high school is an arts conservatory mixed with all the other traditional academic classes and I dedicated myselft to study painting, poetry and acting.  I stopped writing when I started to study Computer Sciences and act professionally in theaters and television, it was just a switch of my arts field focus. Lately I have been trapped by "The Name of the Wind", first fantasy novel of Patrick Routhfuss and I must say it is a wonderful and totally immersive book that inspires me to go back to writing. We will see how it goes !

Although I haven't been doing much Acting work in recent years, I have been doing a lot of radio commercials and voice over for different agencies, which is always fun.

On the technical field, I left Mysterious Development in December since I got an offer to work on a really big, cool and complex .NET backend project. I really enjoyed working on game development, specially having the opportunity to learn how to develop games with Unity3D and C#/Mono but I love .NET technologies and the current project and team is awesome and with an international quality level, so I'm very happy with the move and the current work. I have been working with WCF, Windows Services, RESTful services, ASP.NET, MS SQL, SQLite, WebORB and LINQ.

I'm planning some big changes soon, so hopefully this year will be full with opportunities, challenges and learning. I'll try to make some time and post some of the things I have been working with and learning during these months.

Cheers!
