Pablo was born in La Rioja, Spain, where he lived until 2003, when he moved to Valladolid to start his communications engineering degree at the Universidad de Valladolid. Although he was initially interested in hardware and electronic devices, he soon discovered his love for programming.
He found his first job related to the web world in 2008. Since then he's worked on many projects using different technologies. In 2009, during his master thesis, he discovered Drupal and was hooked. Before long, he released his first contrib module. Drupal became his hobby and passion while he was working on GIS related projects.
Finally, in 2011, he turned his hobby into his career. He worked on major Drupal projects for some large Spanish companies, improving exponentially their coding skills and knowledge of Drupal, including the use of coding standards and following the clean code patterns. “I consider the Drupal community as something essential, and I try to help as much as I can, whether by creating patches or co-maintaining contrib modules, or attending as many Drupal events as I can, or giving support to other drupalists,” López says.

One of his main reasons for joining the Bluespark team was that he believes strongly in remote work, and working in a fully distributed team was at the same time a new challenge and a realization of one of his goals. The use of forefront technologies and Bluespak's team values were also key factors.
Pablo still lives in Valladolid, where he spends time with his wife and friends, traveling, discovering new restaurants and hanging out. But above all else he loves sports and plays handball, his passion since he was a child.
