Life Beyond Work
Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. But, I also love other things – like video games, especially the ones made by Blizzard (WarCraft and HOTS).
All daily activities are accompanied by music, no specific genre, I just enjoy listening to songs that excite or relax me. I even DJ from time to time, at local bars but mostly at my own home.
The most constant part of my daily routine is the workout. I enjoy lifting weights, running, or just punching a bag.
Sometimes, I help the less fortunate in any way needed, with the hope to make somebody’s day just a little bit better. I believe our communities would be a better place if we all helped to the best of our abilities.
Don’t like to brag about it, but I do want to mention it since it is a part of who I am.
Occasionally I help the less fortunate in any way needed in the hope to make someone’s day a little happier and to try to inspire people to do the same.
If you are reading this and know someone that needs help, feel free to send me a message so that I can make my humble contribution.

Like many others, I started as a freelancer working with local clients as well.
It was a nice and easy-going part of my journey. However, I couldn’t escape the feeling that I wasn’t delivering my best. That I wasn’t learning at the pace I was hoping to. Therefore, I decided to join a company.
– WordPress Support
Being a part of the WordPress support company gave me a chance to work with many businesses on their existing sites. It helped me get very familiar with a variety of web development directions, common WordPress issues, and the solutions for those issues.
The complex cases (and their frequency), together with the very long working hours, gave me a lot of experience fast. It was my dedication, however, that propelled me to the next step.
– Support Team Lead
Even though it was an honor to get promoted (and to have your results so highly valued), it meant more people management and less actual WordPress work.
I felt the need to continue learning and expanding my WordPress expertise, so I decided to switch paths once again and go in a completely other direction.
– Full-time WordPress developer
With an already extensive knowledge of the WordPress ecosystem, I joined a marketing company as a full-time web developer. My main job, of course, was to build WordPress websites.
This is where history repeated itself. I once again started being included in the decision-making process and having to train other colleagues. Even though I was humbled by the trust, I didn’t want to drift away from doing what I love and do best.
– Freelancer 2.0
Most sequels don’t go that well, I know. Not this one. With the knowledge, experience, and confidence that I’ve built over the years, the freelancing world was a much better place than I remembered.
– Codeable certified expert
The greatest accomplishment of my career, by far and so far, was passing the Codeable vetting and hiring process. I got the certificate and an incredible opportunity to become a part of the community of the WordPress’ top 2% developers.
WordPress Community Member
During the years, I attended numerous WordCamps, meetups, and workshops. Given how much my local WordPress helped me during my early developer days, I try to give back as much as possible.
This is why I volunteer at WordCamps, hold lectures, and teach at workshops. I try to help the beginners (and intermediate WordPress users) get familiar with the platform and better at what they do.
