Skills

Everyday I write HTML(5), CSS(3) and JavaScript code creating websites that are user-friendly, effective and appealing. I love to do it using CSS preprocessors, template engines, task runners and javascript frameworks and libraries.

During the last years I gained an in-depth understanding of the best practices to develop fast and modern web applications.

Mindset

I have an entrepreneurial attitude. I like watching things from different perspectives and challenge my opinions. I love embracing new ideas and making something real. I'm currently developing a search engine to discover the best recipes from all over the world (I'm a good eater as well!) and I'd like to illustrate a storybook.

In my spare time I like enjoying the calm of nature, the sun and the sea.
