what i do
technical skills

As a reluctant software developer, I fled from a traditional path and explored my skills, by trying my hands on various languages and frameworks/libraries. Software is more than just a tool, and I try to dig deep into it. Today, I knack for critical thinking, empathy, and creativity to create viable and impactful solutions using these technologies.


I've invested 5 years learning Electronics to get my degree in Electronic Engineering while starting to work independently as a web developer. I always had the feeling of focusing on software development thinking that one should never stop learning and go through a process of knowledge acquisition.
