Personal Profile

Web Development has always been a big part of my life. At the age of twelve, I spent countless hours on the "tinkering" in code. Not afraid of a new challenge or a jump into a new adventure, always willing to learn.
In my spare time I like karting, fast cars and multimedia gadgets.
