We asked him a few questions to get to know him a bit better 🙂
What is your area of expertise?
Web and mobile development. With more emphasis on Django, WordPress, Android, and Flutter. Recently I’ve been doing a lot of front-end development for my current bigger client.
How did you become a freelance web developer?
I had a little extra time after finishing university and had some previous experience developing websites. It was a natural course.
What do you enjoy the most about being a freelancer?
Freedom to choose the projects. I can work with people I want, doing jobs that I truly believe in.
If you would not be freelancing, what would you be doing?
I’m still an entrepreneur, so I would focus on building a company.
What are your goals? (Also not professionally speaking)
Always wanted to bring good to the world. I really want to succeed in my career and become able to help more people.
Right now I’m able to donate a good amount of money per month, considering my country’s standards. I wish I can do better while being able to travel the world with my family.
What makes you feel you’re contributing to a better world?
I try to be the better version of myself every day. I help everybody I can, I do voluntary work, donate a part of my fees and try to be a good example for my community.
Favorite organization, and why?
Médecins sans Frontières, they’ve been helping people around the globe for over 50 years and I am glad I could help them for almost 5 years now.
