I started doing web sites at the turn of the century, and kept it as a hobby for a long time. I soon realized though that there are only so much you can do with just html and css. Therefore I started playing with Wordpress and Drupal about seven years ago. It was great at first, but after a while I wanted to be able to tweak features and add my own. So, in the autumn of 2010 I went back to university and started learning programming, and I absolutely love it.
Also, I'm one of those odd people who enjoys working with databases and loves creating database schemas. Even though I like the traditional RDBMS, I'm fascinated by the NoSQL movement and all the different type of databases it entails. I have used MongoDB for a couple of projects and I was really impressed by it.
To keep up with the frantic pace in the web development community and to educate myself further, I read books, keep an eye on Twitter, follow a bunch of blogs via RSS and go to as many conferences as possible. I love learning new things and finding new challenges to tackle. I get a kick out of finding the best solution to a problem.
Besides web development and programming I'm interested in photography, cooking, health (specially Ayurveda), personal growth, yoga, pilates, music, books and traveling.
I occasionally blog on Tumblr.
