About Erik Campo

Sunset at Lake Constance, Germany | Der Bodensee, Deutschland | Lago Constanza.As a Canadian Multilingual Professional, I consider the story of my life nothing less than intense. I was born in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on the shores of the Bodensee (LakeConstance), the most wonderful place on Earth.

Three years after I was born, my parents ventured out to move to Spain. At the time, the country was on the brink of dramatic political and sociological changes and moving out of Germany was quite audacious. We spent almost three more years in Burgos before my visionary parents decided to move again: Montreal, Canada (my second homeland after the Bodensee), was chosen as our new home.

Montreal saw me grow up, becoming a full-fledged Canadian yet retaining my spanish roots. I grew up speaking spanish, french and english. A few years later, my parents decided it was time to move back to Spain. I had the chance to live in old Castille and also on the Mediterranean shore. The experience was short but long enough to receive proper spanish education at school. We then moved back to Montreal.  Did I mention Montreal’s my second homeland.

Back in Montreal, I finished High School and entered the CÉGEP, that is, pre-university studies in Québec. Back then, I was interested in Health Sciences and started Biology at Université de Montréal. That didn’t quite work and, long story short, I ended up studying Computer Science at Université du Québec A Montreal (UQAM).

In 1998, I decided it was time for a change again, this time alone. So I found myself a new job and established my residence in Madrid, Spain, where I still live. After more than 15 years working in the field of IT and after having obtained a master’s degree at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, I am now working in the fields of Social Media, Online Marketing and SEO.

Who knows what the future may hold.
