Design & Front-end Development

I design print ads, web banners, apps and websites. I develop small websites for the accommodation industry using WordPress, and front-end development for company software which was created using the ASP.NET MVC framework.

With 5+ years of experience in front-end web development & design, I am now looking to transfer my skills to a company that is interesting in keeping up with the current technology trends so that I can grow my skills as a front-end developer and graphic designer.
