A couple of days after arriving in NZ I had to take a passport photo. I can’t remember what for.

I’ve meaning to build a nice “About” page, but my life backlog has other priorities, in the meantime, you can see my resume here.
By the way, have you seen my business cards? I’ll give you one if we ever meet.

I’m not currently open to any freelance projects. If you want to talk about life and technology or go for a ride, just drop me a line to hi@armandotorrealba.com

My Gear and Gadgets

Computers / Tables

I use my good old MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) for most of my freelance and personal work, after almost 10 years it has gotten a bit slow, but not old enough to replace it.
I use a Remarkable for reading and sketching, and a Kindle Paperwhite for reading. I like reading.


For my photography, I’m currently using a Sony Alpha a7 ii. I used to be a Canon user, but the mirror-less / full frame combination is hard to beat.


I love bikes, I have owned multiple bikes in my life, currently, I have: a Surly Crosscheck for my daily commute, an Intense Carbine 2017 for Enduro and a BMC Team Machine 2013 for Road cycling
