Madrid - Spain

I’m a self-taught software developer living in Madrid, Spain. I'm passionate about all things JavaScript and producing work that I can be proud of.

Through continuous learning, my aim is to be able to work confidently on both client- and server-side code.

I’m curious by nature, enjoy challenges and consider myself to be a quick learner. As regards work ethic, I strongly believe in the adage, “If you are going to do something, do it well”.

If you are developing an exciting project and believe my skills and knowledge could be beneficial, I would love to hear from you.

Designed and launched a responsive WordPress site for Yes magazine which includes a shop powered by WooCommerce and payments handled by Stripe and PayPal. Custom functions were added to handle digital downloads and magazine subscriptions. I am also responsible for creating site content and managing the blog.

Designed six unique templates for the iOS app version of Yes magazine made for the TypeEngine publishing platform. A template was made for each section of the magazine and was designed to mimic, as much as possible, the styles of the print version.
