He is, what is commonly referred to as, a full-stack developer and has skills in multiple disciplines (Swift, PHP, Python, Ruby and even a little C# to mention a few) with senior-level expertise working with Django, Laravel, Craft CMS, Magento and WordPress and others.
He somehow always returns to, and is quite well known for his work in eCommerce having worked on projects, or directly with companies like PDO PayGate, WooCommerce and Shopify, and in the past consulted to startups and SBMEs, providing high-level architectural insight and strategy implementation of digital storefronts.
