Hello dear friends,
My name is Daniel, I’m 37 and live in Spain.
I start making websites back in 98 on Tripod, love to design UI and hand code static web sites don’t know to program yet because I didn’t need to, but I am learning now so try to understand the basics right now, I “fighting” with JS and php. In the era of flash I did a lot of work with Macromedia’s program but when Apple destroy the technology I felt like some part of me died.
I never worked as a full time web designer till I was 30 or so, always had my normal job and make website as a hobby and some times for money, for obvious reasons like the lack of conviction, determination and initiative. Wen the economical crisis hit Spain and I found my self with economical problems and had to search for an alternative so I study psychology for a while then I fund anther job and quit the to study.
The thing is that I quit the job as a construction worker and got into the graphic design academy, here in my home town, to be a professional designer, but because health problems I had to quit the school and can’t work and study as the same time I guess (only in my case, my brother manage to finish the university and work at the same time)
After 4 hard years I created with a colleague a small design firm in Valencia, but it did not work quite well, we discuss all the time about projects an how we distribute the work. I did not learn very much in the school, have learned a lot from books and video tutorials like udemy and lynda.com. So after the epic fail with my work project, I changed the job for a place in a factory and worked as a mechanic and wood worker till about two years ago when the factory closed and fired all the workers because o economical problems. After that I had become unemployed and searching for a job actively till I found another design school here in Valencia.
So I had pass the exam ant start the product design career, but didn’t last to much either because I can’t maintained the pace with the more scientific courses, but I manege to learn how to design in Blender, AutoCad, Solidworks, Fusion360 and other CAD and PC modelling software.
My intentions with this community is to make friends, learn a lot, and also collaborate actively in the forum, but for know I will retire in silence and take a look on the forum before ask questions and present my doubts.
I love metal, al genres of metal but not the symphonic or black/death, because I love to listen to the words of the son and understand it. Video games, rpg, isometric turn-based ones, stealth games and 4X. I also play board games like Scythe and Descent 2 and have two army of Age of Sigmar by GW, and air-soft too, have two MP5 a M4A1, and a 1911 hybrid. Love Italian food and motorcycles specially the cafe racer ones.
If you want to know more things about me, please just ask.
Thanks an have a nice day!
See you soon and hope we have fun!
