00 About me

Hi! I'm Carlos.
My full name is Carlos Roberto Rodrigo Turner.
I was born on the 14th of july of 1985, the son of a scottish mum and a spanish father.

Happily married with Mar 👩🏼 since the 27th of May, 2017.

I have a BSc in Quantity Surveying, a higher degree in Administration and Finance, and I'm self-taught web-developer (HTML, CSS, PHP and JS).

I run a small web-development studio called Pixelea and a news aggregator,

I currently work at Técnica y Avance as responsible for the day to day of the spare parts department and managing the digital transformation.

I have worked at Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren and Repsol. I have participated in the development of really interesting Architecture projects (196 VPOs in Getafe, of Palacio de Arenas de San Pedro....) I have also worked as a translator (English and French) and as an advisor and in the drafting of the Document of Madrid on the conservation of the heritage of the 20th century.

04 Notes

05 Projects


Simple and flexible web design and development.

Tired of visiting "all the sites" to get your news. So was I, so I built my own news aggregator. Free, no ads and no cookies.


A collection of cool and inspiring things.

Commonplace "book"

This is an annotated personal anthology. My own collection of aphorisms, poems, parts of poems, highlights, song lyrics, bits of humor... anything that has struck me as exciting, inspiring, stimulating, odd or amusing.

08 About this site

This site is written in English as I understand it is the most used language in the internet and it also allows me to improve my writing skills.

This site does not use a CMS nor a database, it's pure HTML, CSS and some JS. Though some times it makes it harder to maintain, it gives me more flexibility to display what I want.
