About me

about me

I am currently working as a web developer for an advertising agency but I consider myself to be an all around technology enthusiast.I like working both front end and back end, so I guess that makes me a full stack developer.

I love working with a myriad of technologies like PHP, MySQL, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Apache, HTML and a ton of frameworks like Codeigniter, Laravel and Bootstrap. I am passionate about delivering high quality experiences to users.

I started this blog to share useful articles, plugins and snippets that I occasionally find around the web, as well as write my own articles when I have something interesting to say. Feel free to contact me with anything you need!

During these past few years I have worked with multiple well known brands and I was part of several projects that delivered high quality content to users. In most of these projects I worked as a Web Developer although in some cases I was involved in other aspects as well.
