Profile

I'm able to convert awesome designs into hand coded, pixel perfect and cross browser compatible HTML/CSS markup and enjoy building performance optimized, well coded and modern applications. This can be a small one pager but also a large-scale web application, either alone or as an efficient and effective member of a larger agile team.

Highly Motivated and eager to learn new technologies to deliver awesome solutions.
