Carlos Zahumenszky was born in Vitoria in 1974. He studied Journalism and Marketing and Public Relations at the University of Leoia. He started his career path as an infographist for Grup Vocento and was art director in a communications agency, while also writing a weekly column on video games and technology in the newspaper El Correo.
The interest in journalism prevailed over the field of design and Carlos started focusing on scientific and technological journalism. After 3 years of being the editor in the leading technological blog in Spain xataka.com, he started to develop the Spanish version of gizmodo, jointly with journalist Manuel Àngel Mendez. He currently writes about science, devices, video games, the internet, and how new technologies change our life style, often without us realizing it.
