I am a self-taught multi-skilled designer/developer that has always followed my passion for creative outlet. I cannot resist to invent, improve and tweak whatever I’m undertaking and as such fell in love with development, design, photography and cooking.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned is that quality supersedes quantity and thus my first priority is to ensure a stable and secure platform.
Whatever you do, do it passionately!
