Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I have worked as an Architect, developer and site builder on various projects for different companies. I have experience on REST/web services, installation profiles, (gazillion) custom modules, features, scalability and basically i have some kind of touch on all different sides of Drupal.

I have also themed probably 20+ sites, but still my CSS/DOM sucks, so i'll gladly leave that part to others. I follow Drupal scene on a daily basis and actively seek and test the bleeding edge innovations around and inside it.
