A mix of entrepreneur and Gamer for my whole short life.

I'm a gamification designer (if you can call it like that) ay PlayJugo, teach Gamification at the IEBS Master degrees and coordinate Gamification Spain Meetups (GMS).

A while ago, I created my own legendary adventure on Gamification called Epic Win Blog and I´m still learning and improving everyday with passion!
