I like coding software and exploring new technologies since 1996 when I wrote my first QBasic program. Nowadays, after more than 20 years, computer science and technology still fascinate me. The power of building new solutions that provide elevated customer and business value impresses me. Working with teams of nice people interested in their domains makes me glad and is one of the reasons why I like my job.
I'm a clean code developer with a broad knowledge of frameworks, architectures and tools around the Java and Web ecosystems.
Starting as a self-employed developer in the early 2000's I've had the opportunity of working together with many people in different domains and software landscapes.
