I'm an advanced coder and UI/UX designer with decades of experience managing projects and teams, creating dynamic, data-driven web sites and other digital media, including video, audio and animation.
I have advanced-level skills and extensive experience in the following areas of software development and interactive media. (I am stronger in front-end technologies, but very comfortable with server-side as well.)
· OOP, functional and event-driven programming
· PHP / C# / AS3 / MySQL / NodeJS
· User interface design (UI/UX)
· Branding / Identity / Logo design
· Graphic and information design (digital and print)
· Video, audio, music editing and production
· Animation / 3D / Motion graphics
I love learning new tools and technologies, and pick up new things very quickly.
I want to build a new company or join as a founder of a young startup to develop products in one of these areas:
- Project Management and Workflow
- Media Technology
- Creative Tools
(I prefer not to be in the advertising or entertainment spaces, but the right idea could change my mind. Open to other areas as well.)
I am passionate about product-market fit, solving real problems, usability, clean code, documentation, and great design.
There's always a solution! - Me
