I am an experienced front-end web developer with over a decade of experience. A born problem-solver, I have honed my troubleshooting skills and I’m passionate about learning and keeping up with dev related concepts and technologies. I highly respect and appreciate great design and there is nothing more rewarding to me than developing beautiful and functional web apps. I’m seeking to bring these strengths to a team developing cutting-edge web applications.
