Sounds of Barcelona. This is a personal blog. I will be sharing thoughts and stories while living in the Catalan capital.

I am a Senior Front-end Software Engineer from Barcelona, a Haidong Gumdo Instructor (korean martial art of the sword), a street photographer, a travel lover, a TV addict, a Boston Red Sox fan, and a privacy advocate.
