intro

All about me.

When the first computer, already a star in my house since the '90s, was replaced to make room for a Pentium II revolution, the ill-fated predecessor became my toy. The first step was to take it apart & reassemble it and then notice with surprise and joy that it still worked perfectly. Over time I began to dare more: replacing components, changing cases, overclocking the CPU. So, as a child, I realized that the computer was my passion.

When I became a teenager I got in touch with a family friend who worked in the IT sector, so I immersed myself in a world made of XHTML and CSS tags, where Linux replaced Windows and where web development took the place of the hardware tricks. It was clear: the computer was not only my passion but it could become my job. I spent the difficult years of high school between books, many friends and work that took more and more a definite shape until I started to collaborate with companies: first, a small one that developed management software using Ruby on Rails, then an advertising agency where creativity was the daily bread.

In these years I’ve not only greatly improved my technical skills, but I also lived many experiences that have increasingly stimulated my curiosity about new technologies and beyond. I learned to work in a team, to love the differences between each people I met on my path, and to love the uniqueness of the story that everyone builds in their own lives.

My desire to know, my wish for new experiences and my infinite passion for travel have allowed me to move to Spain, where I started my new great adventure.

expertise

Couple of things I can do.

Templating

I not only know all HTML5 secrets but I also love to work with template engines like Pug or with generators as Jekyll.

Advanced CSS

Yes, CSS3 is awesome but I like to boost it using SCSS, strictly following BEM and SMACSS methodologies, and compile it with my dear friend Gulp.

JavaScript / jQuery

I can easily move through the JavaScript world. I'm so familiar with jQuery that I decided to experiment a little bit of AngularJS and React.

Object-Oriented PHP

Surprised? I'm not only a Front-end developer. I can also write beautiful PHP code, applying PSR best practices and writing PHPUnit tests.

WordPress

An easy solution that requires caution. I can develop WP themes and plugins in the right way, using OOP PHP and taking performances really serious.

Git

Git is my bread and butter. Does not matter how large is the team, I'm confident with pull requests, reviews and git flow.
