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.
Spiritual search has been one of my most important characteristics throughout my life. The core of my spiritual life lies on the center of an equilateral triangle whose vertices are Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism. When, years ago, I read in a book written by the Jesuit priest and Zen master Arul M. Arokiasamy that the author feels Christian, Hindu and Buddhist, I evoked something very familiar, because I have felt the same way throughout most of my existence.
Regarding Christian tradition, Saint Ignatius of Loyola teaches us very valuable keys for a right discernment of God's will; Upasaka Culadasa, who belongs to the Buddhist lineage, shows us how to meditate to establish connection with Reality; and Paramahansa Yogananda, who came from a background rooted in Hinduism but that is actually a universal Master, teaches us the unfathomable Absoluteness and Infinitude of God.
