Testimonials

Interests

Apart from being a web developer, I enjoy spending my time outdoors. I love to play basketball and soccer, and also enjoy taking pictures of the nature.

When forced indoors, I enjoy watching movies and TV shows. I also spend time with the family alongside our karaoke machine. I like to stay at the forefront of technology, so I also read a lot of tech news and take online classes to further develop my skillset.
