Career objectives

I thrive to improve my technical skills on each website I work on. My goal is to be proficient in cutting-edge aspects of web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


Since I started using Internet, I have been passionate about website building. At first it was only a hobby, and later I realized it could be my full-time job. It has been years now, and I am still moving forward, always learning and experimenting to find solutions for every new step of modern web development.
