Career Profile

I am a full stack web developer with a vast array of knowledge in many different front and and back end languages, responsive layouts, databases, and best code practices. My multi-skilled abilities led me to handle different kind of projects; from micro-sites and blogs on Wordpress, news and heavy content sites on Drupal CMS to e-commerce solutions on Magento. I always try explore and learn new technologies, even when they are not (yet) in my field of specialties. Challenge is my life, motivated to success, easy going, flexible and comfortable working with people from different backgrounds and viewpoints.
