About me Imprimir

Txemi Jendrix is the alias of José Miguel González-Pinto Díaz. I live in Bilbao since I was born in 1964. I have two precious daughters called Olalla and Maria.

I started with computing in 1988, with a Sanyo computer (a 086) without a hard drive and a green phosphorous screen. Since then I have always used a computer to do my job. Nowadays I own an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ with 4 Gb of ram memory, one hard drive (1 Tb), a 23" screen with a resolution of 1680x1050 and I work with Ubuntu Studio 64 bits as operating system. I also have a netbook Acer One that uses bodhi linux as primary OS.

I work as a graphic designer and web designer form many years now. The info about web design is in its own section in the main menu.

Talking about graphic design, these are some of my facts:

.: Prizes and mentions in Graphic Design and 3D contests.
