FULL STACK DEVELOPER & ARTWORKER

Professional Profile

I am a Creative Artworker specialising in packaging passionate about Software Development.

I have work in different production departments in communication with art directors and printers. I am used
to
work in a team and the level of demand in large companies.

Ocassionally, I have been helping with web projects inside the companies or creating websites for my own clients because I love tech and I always take the opportunity to learn.

For this reason, recently I decided to give a step forward in my career to Software Development taking a Full Stack course as a developer.

At this moment in time, I’m looking for an opportunity to start my IT career.
