I was born in Mérida (Spain), an ancient city founded by the Roman Empire in 25 BC, in the time of Caesar Augustus. Mérida is located in the south west of Spain. The city became the capital of Lusitania province, and one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. Mérida preserves more important ancient Roman monuments than any other city in Spain.
Currently I am based in Seville (Spain), a very beautiful southern city, full of History.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of Seville, where I am a Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics. Currently, I am teaching Numerical Analysis, making use of MATLAB, a high-level technical computing language.
With regard to photography, I especially love black & white images, though my website contains both black & white and color pictures. Recently, I have discovered the superb power of Capture One software to render impressive and natural color images.
The images appearing in my website have been taken mostly in the United States, México, United Kingdom, and Spain. I love to travel, especially to México and to the United States, and I do so as frequently as I can.
Spiritual search has been one of my most important characteristics throughout my life. An empty heart longs for the presence of the Infinite Being, otherwise it is difficult to fill. After decades of a long searching, my steps led me to meet Paramahansa Yogananda, whose precious teachings I faithfully follow every day. These teachings are truly transmitted through Self-Realization Fellowship, the international organization founded in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda to teach scientific methods of meditation and principles of spiritual living.
I believe that the religion born in India, known as Hinduism or more properly as Sanatana Dharma (the Eternal Way), expresses and articulates in an extraordinary way the relationship between man and the Supreme Being. Using software versioning as an analogy, one could say that whereas the concept of God in most of religions is 1.0, in Hinduism it is 2.0. Anyway, I am convinced that all religions are but different paths leading to the same goal.
