➤ Informal Description (a little bit about my work habits)

  1. I am a friendly, open-minded and experienced programmer willing to deliver a high quality, scalable solution to the clients I work with.
  2. I like to plan the project, hence expect me to ask a lot of questions throughout the whole development.
  3. I appreciate ongoing and clear communication, which I believe helps in building a healthy relationship.
  4. I usually need some time to think things through. So, I’d rather avoid ASAP projects.
  5. I like to work on mid-sized projects the most, although I am open to any kind of work when it comes to the project size.

➤ Formal Description (a little bit about my experience)

Given my 9 years of experience working as a Lead WordPress Developer for the Xfive.co, academic background and a huge interest in Cybersecurity I can help Coadable client’s with:

  2. Custom plugin development – custom database tables, API integrations, custom functionalities.

  6. Specific host choices – I am very experienced with WP Engine, Bluehost, Media Temple or Kinsta.
  7. Custom Back End utilities based on Advanced Custom Fields (they are great for custom, hand-crafted Back End panels).

➤ Other (a little bit about my hobbies)

I love WordPress for 11 years where I started my first, personal blog. I like the platform’s availability, extensibility, ease of use and scalability. I like to blog as I can help the others out: WP doin.

Privately, given my sports background I exercise a lot, doing all sorts of activities from Martial Arts (boxing is my background), through gym, swimming and acrobatics– healthy body, healthy mind – that’s what I believe.

I am also a book lover and if you read a lot like I do feel free to add me on services like goodreads

Outside of that I love traveling and have traveled a lot of Europe already, have been living in Portugal and Northern Ireland for a long while.

Finally, I take care of my lonely two grandmothers, given the fact some of my family lives abroad.

Rafal did a good job clarifying what I was looking for. He did the work quickly and accurately. He made a couple of little adjustments quickly when I requested them.
