About Me

I am Software Developer with a passion for technology with strong backend (PHP, MySQL, .NET, PostgreSQL and SQL Server) and frontend (HTML5, CSS3, AngularJs and KnockOutJs) experience. I combine my education with expertise in CSS3, HTML5, Javascript to build creative and effective websites and applications. I have been a software professional for more than 7 years, working as a Consultant, Developer, Team Lead, Software Engineer and Hybrid Engineer. I started developing software in .net and after I began to build application using Symphony and others Frameworks with Php, then I loved to develop not just functional, scalable and maintainable but also very attractive for people so currently I develop Web Applications with Responsive Design for Mobile Devices.
