With a proven background in delivery of quality IT services and solutions, I have a strong focus on full-stack web applications and specialize in custom API integrations as well as working with large relational databases.

While I have over 10 years of experience working with PHP and JavaScript-heavy websites, I am very comfortable using any new technology or tool that is necessary and better suited for the task at hand.

I also love tweaking with technology in general, home automations, IoT devices, Raspberry Pi and Arduino to name a few.

    WeCodePixels (Nov 2019 - Ongoing)

    One important project I built while working at WeCodePixels is a completely custom flight search engine with a strong focus on environmental awareness. This required connecting with numerous APIs to provide real-time data for flights and aircrafts as well as their ecological impact, and finally integrating them in a unified and very performant way.

    Another project I contributed to was for the automotive industry, in which we ingested and processed very large datasets, and finally presented them in an efficient and user-friendly way. Key responsibilities included tweaking the MariaDB database and crafting custom and highly efficient SQL queries, and implementing a bespoke and highly interactive visual representation of the data using D3.js.

    Responsibilities
    • Communicating with clients directly to gain insight on business requirements and provide the best-suited solutions.

    • Handling of large datasets and database migrations, as well as custom visualizations of said data.
