Curriculum Vitae

I am a versatile web developer with a feeling for architecture and an eye for detail. I love to program rich applications for the web and/or mobile, using modern technologies like HTML5 and Python/Django. Although I am quite skilled with JavaScript and CSS, I am most productive with CoffeeScript, Backbone, RequireJS, Sass/Compass and Handlebars.

I enjoy test-driven front-end development, using tools such as Mocha, Chai, Sinon and Squire.
