Lover of Arts and Technology
Very knowledgeable person, both in visual arts and technology. I have been a long time freelancer.
My skills include graphic, print and web design. Corporate design. Architectural modeling and rendering with use of architectural lighting and photometric data. I can also model and render other types of objects, mostly rigid (non-organic) such as mechanical parts or industrial designs. Good sense of measuring units, scales and manufacturing tolerances.
Digital photo and image editing such as artistic retouching, color and level correction, transparencies and layers.
Hobbyist photographer with basic knowledge of digital photography, starting to work with HDR (High Dynamic Range) images and panoramas.
Computer expert, mainly with LINUX/UNIX systems. Server or workstation virtualization. Server installation and configuration such as the Apache web server with PHP and MySQL extensions, FTP server, MySQL DB server and mail server. Installation, configuration and administration of PHP sites such as web forums, wikis and blogs, search engine optimization, registered google webmaster tools user. Sound workstation installation and configuration with Linux for low latency and real-time response for pro-audio.
Audio engineering, mostly tracking, mixing and editing in digital domain. Usage of audio plugins/effects such as compressors, limiters, EQ's, reverbs, audio cleaning or noise removal. Always work with high resolution audio, usually 24bit/44.1KHz (or 48 KHz if necessary). Very cautious of not over processing signals so there is a healthy dynamic range left if further processing will be done like mastering.
Linux is my main production OS, some of the software I use are Blender for 3D modeling, Drafsight (compatible with Autocad), Inkscape for vector graphics, GIMP and Darktable for image/photo editing, Libre Office (compatible with MS Office), Scribus for print design layout, Luxrender for photorealistic rendering, Luminance HDR for High Dynamic Range images, Hugin for panoramas, Ardour and Harrison Mixbus for pro-audio (recording and mixing) and Audacity for sound editing. I can also use MS Windows software such as Autocad, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Fireworks.
Proficient with both English and Spanish languages, both spoken and written, so translating could also be considered as one of my skills.
I currently live in Mexico, I have both Mexican and U.S. citizenships, I am open to travelling if necessary.
