ABOUT ME

I have over 10 years of experience working in the IT field.

I began my career as a multimedia designer, but over time I started to do some coding both at work (front-end) and in my personal projects (both front-end and backend).

In 2019 I decided to switch to a full-time developer position, as I realized over the years that coding is quite a passion of mine, and I have been working as such since then.

My goal is to keep evolving as a developer and leverage my past experience in the IT field along with my experience with modern technologies, build quality software for my employer/customers and be a productive member of my team.
