En la piscina


Cartophilic geek, book junkie, music lover, free software and culture running through my veins, everyday photographer, twitter addicted, beer admirer, jack of all trades

Well, I'm Jorge Sanz and I'm from Valencia, Spain and I live in Aldaia , near the city. I work at CartoDB as a Solutions Engineer where I help users and partners to develop great applications using our awesome product. I studied Surveying first, and afterwards Cartography and Geodesy, so my background is highly focused on Earth sciences, but as I love computers and programming, I ended up working with Geographical Information Systems. Nowadays my work is focused on a great geospatial product, I do a bit of everything, mostly helping sales people to advice our users on the best approach to their requirements.

I'm a truly supporter of free software and culture so I try to develop all my professional activities on that arena, volunteering at the OSGeo Foundation at any level, helping to manage some foundation systems, supporting the OSGeo Spanish Language Local Chapter and promoting at local level at our Geoinquietos group.

Finally I really enjoy sailing, reading a good novel, going to the cinema, swimming or a good hike.


I love to write, mostly in Spanish but also in English for technical stuff. Lastly I haven't hade too much energy to write at my blogs but I do my best and try to post in all of them from time to time. You'll find my writing here, at CartoDB and with my good friends at GeomaticBlog.

Please, if you find something interesting leave a comment and you will make me happy.


I'm a twitter addicted so that's my primary social media network. I use facebook to interact with my friends and family. I use Pinboard to collect my bookmarks and GoodReads to track the books I'm reading.


I'm not at all an skilled photographer. But I post on flickr almost everyday photographs about what happens around me so my shots reflect where I am, and what I'm doing. Since 2011 I try to eveyday post a photograph at 8:36pm, a cool idea I got from Buster Benson. Finally after some time without scrobbling, I'm using again LastFM to track what I'm listening and some tunes I enjoy.
