Resumé

Front-end designer & developer in Copenhagen

I work as a link between design and development. I focus on the look and feel of a product, as well as its technical feasibility. I work with HTML, CSS, JS and some of the popular libraries and frameworks like Bootstrap and React.

I’ve been shifting careers from customer service and online marketing, through e-commerce, to front-end design and development. I’ve found my passion in bettering the digital world.

Personally, I love to work in teams and get inspired by my teammates' new ideas, but years of freelancing and home office also taught me discipline, ownership and effective individual work.
