Biography

I am a designer & front/end developer with experience in high-profile web projects as well as design, typography, SEO, e-commerce and advertising. I am determined and highly organized person, with a strong work ethic and proven ability to manage projects with strict budgets and timescales. My hobbies focus on creativity and inspiration. In my spare time I try to travel a lot and keep myself fit, which is why I spend a lot of my time in a gym, playing tennis, snowboarding during winter season and wake-boarding in the summer.

Currently seeking interesting projects to expand my web experience to a wider range of industries.
