We’re excited to introduce you the newest addition to our iOS team, Mr. Ivan Bella López! Doesn’t his name just roll off your tongue? A proud native of Barcelona, Ivan just recently joined our iPhone dev team after he lived and worked in Amsterdam for the past few years.
Let’s give a warm hug and a hearty ¡Hola! to Ivan and get to know him through his pictures first!
Who are you?
What do you love?
What really annoys you?
Your favorite place in the world?
Your best kept secret?
Please tell us something about yourself: who are you, where do you come from, what did you do in the past few years and how did you find your way to EyeEm?
Hi! I’m Ivan, 27 years old. I come from my beloved Barcelona. For the past few years I’ve been living in Amsterdam, a lovely city! I was looking for a job in Berlin and that’s how I came across EyeEm. The thing is I wanted to move to Berlin thus I needed a job. When I tried EyeEm, it became clear that I wanted to work here . EyeEm rocks!
Can you tell us more about what you love?
I really like traveling and the uncertainty that is involved. It doesn’t matter if you go near or far. You always have surprises, good and bad moments. By the way, that picture is in Montenegro during a trip through the Balkans.
Do you have any tips on how to untangle cords?
Actually… no! That is what annoys me the most but looking up in Internet I found a solution. The key is to do the rock sign! Check this out this tutorial.
Why is parsley, white wine, and a green bag your best kept secret?
That’s a tricky picture! I found out a couple years ago that I am color blind but just a bit for the color green. In the picture the those greens are not that different to me. I think is called deuteranopic. I’m not sure though. Well, I guess it’s not a secret anymore :
Do you think Spain will win the Euro Cup? And what will you do if they don’t?
First of all I must say there are things more important than football but I’m a big football fan. It’s gonna be really hard to win this Eurocup, they are under a lot pressure but they will try their best. I am totally sure. If they don’t win… I hope Germany does… It will be an amazing party all over the city and I want to be part of it!
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
My ability to be miles away when talking when chatting with friends! I’ve had so many funny moments trying to catch up with them by saying stupid and nonsensical things. Oh! I am also quite scatterbrained… doesn’t sound that funny but last year I bought my plane tickets the other way around. The worst thing was when I realized my mistake two days before flying, during Christmas.
What’s your favorite picture you took recently?
I haven’t had the chance to take a lot of pictures since I am trying to settle down in Berlin, but this I like this one in Cadaqués during my break Amsterdam – Berlin. It’s more because of being home spendin g time with my family and friends rather than the picture itself
What are you favorite albums on EyeEm?
I like “street art” and “water”!
Thanks Ivan. Great to have you on board!
