About me

I have been a computer addict since I got my hands on a Commodore 64 as a kid.

I started working as a web developer in my early 20s and as an application developer a couple of years later. I have quite a few years of experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL, WordPress, Cordova/PhoneGap and Java SE as well. I also have 5+ years of Microsoft Axapta 3 and Dynamics AX 2012 development experience, but that door is closed.

I quit my day job in 2015 to become a full time freelancer. In 2020 I rediscovered an old hobby of mine: making video games. It gradually became my primary focus and now I'm working towards becoming a full time indie game developer.

Work experience

Freelance developer (part time since 2008, full time since 2016)

I build websites, mobile and web applications, sometimes simple video games.

Workshop lead @ Kollabor (2020 - 2023)

I ran learning-by-doing workshops for primary and secondary school kids about programming, video game development, robotics, 3D modeling and printing. Had enormous fun with BBC Micro Bit boards, Edison robots, 3D printers and Construct 3.

Mobile application developer @ Open Data Security S.L. (2015 - 2016)

My main project was replacing an existing Android application with a cross-platform (Android and iOS) Cordova-based one with updated UI and added functionality. The UI was based on the Framework7 library; the Android version also included a plugin I developed in Java that interfaced with a device API that had no support in Cordova.

Developer & IT coordinator @ Marzek Kner Packaging Llc (2010 - 2015)

My job primarily involved ERP development (Microsoft Axapta 3 at first, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 later). I was also working on web/intranet apps in PHP/MySQL, with the odd Zebra printer controller Java app, barcode scanning PhoneGap mobile app and Raspberry Pi based digital signage system development here and there.

Sitebuilder and PHP developer @ Concept Internet Ltd (3 month internship in 2010)

I turned PSDs into HTML and CSS files at first, later they let me make modifications on PHP/MySQL based e-commerce sites.
