Web Design

I've been designing pages from more than 15 years, I started with basic html in old Netscape browser in a clunky machine, learned CSSl, moved from flash to html5, from tables and iframes to responsive sites. I can say that I've seen everything, when IE was standard (kiding), when Wordpress was fighting their place as a simple blog platform to become one of the most (if not the most) popular CMS around. I created many Wordpress sites, using templates, frameworks and even some of them from scratch. I had to learn PHP and jQuery to keep up to date. Since 2009 I started to work as webdesigner professionally (and in the last 3 years full time as front end deveolper), not just a hobby but actually creating useful pages for people, developing small personal projects, and working in a company with thousands of clients. Web design is still growing, and I plan to keep on learning.

Link Now Media

I'm currently a front end developer and integrator at LinkNowMedia a webdesign company based in Montreal, Canada. I work with over 1000 clients and created thousands of websites from all kind of services.
