I don’t design the sites, I make them work.
Technologies and Philosophy
My philosophy on learning to use technologies is always the same: experiment, fail, fix, fail again, fix again. Searching online will only get you so far — you should spend time with your debugger, experimenting away with whichever technology you need to learn. Always keep an open mind, use tools you wouldn’t usually use, and never give up.
When not buried in my work, I enjoy watching anime movies like Hunter x Hunter, One Piece and One-Punch Man. I spend much of my weekends playing the online game like Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive, feel free to find me on Dota 2. If you want to hear my real opinion on things, throw a bottle of wine at me.
I do my best to be as accessible as possible. Visit the contact page to find out how you can get in touch.
