About me…

With a degree in Law and Journalism, I specialized in criminology and cultural journalism. Mobile apps, especially Android apps, are one of my great passions. I have been testing dozens of apps every day for over six years now, discovering all their secrets and ins and outs to share them with Malavida users. Although I write reviews of almost any kind of app, I especially like interactive novels, puzzles, and kawaii games. In addition to reviewing apps, I also write guides, news, and tips about software and technology to make people's lives a little easier.

Currently, I combine my two careers through two very different career paths. On the one hand, I work as a legal handwriting expert, and on the other hand, I write for several digital media about software, economy, video games, and other topics. Books, human resources, companies, cinema and television, tourism, criminal law, animals, sports... there is nothing I cannot write about. I tried to keep technology at bay, but in the end, it caught up with me and I ended up becoming an expert in mobile apps. Whatever application you are looking for, I am the right person to ask.

But there is life beyond work. Some people have the soul of a dreamer, I have the soul of a geek. Journalist, jurist, criminologist, eternal student, cinephile, restless reader, clumsy sportswoman, and hopeless dreamer. Resident in Hobbiton, somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La, I now come to these lands to narrate my adventures and witticisms about bits and technology.

Where will wants not, a way opens.
Some short questions…
  • What operating system do you prefer or use the most?

    Windows, I think Apple is the evil.

  • In your opinion, which is the best mobile operating system?

    Android, I still think Apple is the evil.

  • What application is a must on your computer?

    Spotify, can you imagine a world without music?

  • And on your smartphone?

    My must have apps are the camera, Fitbit and Netflix. And now also Disney+!

  • Do you have a favourite game?

    Terranigma, for SNES. And almost any Kingdom Hearts.

  • Fond of social networks? Which is your favourite?

    We just manage to get on with each other. I would go for Instagram because of all the posing going on there.

  • If you had to choose, which would you say has been the greatest technological invention of the last century?

    The Super Nintendo. And as a very worthy runner-up, coffee capsule machines, instant suppliers of caffeine.

  • Who do you consider has contributed most towards the development of software?

    Would it be geeky to say Shigeru Miyamoto?
