About me

My name is Karina and I’ve always wanted to write a blog but never manage to find about what. Now that I am starting to study in the University of Life as a mom, it only makes sense that I combine this with my other passion, Technology. After all we are no more than the sum of all our talents, and I really hope to graduate with honours!

As I am writing these lines, I am 33w5d pregnant of our first child and I cannot feel more excited and scared at the same time (the same feeling I had the months before starting university). I am organised (a bit on the control freak side) and I have an app, method or theory for everything! I like to try new things, travel and read, and tell whoever wants to hear me out about it so I’ll use this blog for that! Hope you enjoy it!!

My Background

I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. I have lived so far in 4 different cities, travelled to at least 10 different countries and gained a new nationality in the process. When I was 15, I had my career goals figured out, I used to say: “I am going to study Computer Engineer in Universidad Simon Bolivar. After graduation, I want to work a couple of years in Venezuela before moving to Europe, probably Spain, There a want to work a couple more years and see how it is, if I like it I’ll stay, otherwise I’ll move on to my next adventure in an English speaking country, something like UK or USA. And if I don’t like it there, I’ll come back to Venezuela.”

Well, so far three ticks in that list! I graduated in 2009 as Computer Engineer in Universidad Simon Bolivar. In 2010, I moved to Madrid, Spain and I lived there until 2014 when I got an amazing job opportunity at AOL in London. I have been living here ever since!

During my career, I had several roles, Full Stack Engineer at an E-com in Venezuela, Front-end and TV App Engineer at a startup in Madrid, Technical Support Engineer at SmartADServer (great company to work for!), again Front-End Engineer at eDreams Odigeo and then I got the chance to move up the ladder as Team Leader in the same company before moving to London. Currently, I am a Software Engineer Manager at Expedia. I have loved every single role and learned so much!
