01. Bio

Journey to web development

Having a computer at home since I whas a kid, I quickly began poking at it. I did not enjoy compulsory education too much. After high school, I taught myself some web development and started freelancing.

In 2004 I co-founded a company (escadrone.com) with a friend for the next 3 years years and in 2017 got back before to web application and UX design at Schneider Electric as a Business Analyst.

I'm now working as a freelance web developer.
