I'm a passionate Web Developer with about 10 years of commercial experience, I work either on front-end or back-end. I also like to work in such different areas like SEO, Accessibility and Project Management. I'm looking at any time for new challenges and incentives to keep myself at the cutting edge. I like to share the knowledge to help everyone whenever possible. I like to spend my spare time to study new technologies and methodologies that might be applied the next day at work.
Since the early 2000s I've been focused to the web development, and nowadays I'm almost totally involved in PHP and JS applications. I've obtained certification as PHP 5 Engineer and IWA Application Developer.
