You can keep on scrolling to read more about me or visit one of my social media spaces.
I am a German-Guatemalan developer, who is passionate about programming and doing it through clean code. Besides developing stuff, I love spending time with my wife, travelling and anything that is tech related. I enjoy to drink coffee and rum (not necessarily together), especially if they are Guatemalan. I have a soft spot for anything related to super heroes, Legos or T-rexes.
I feel fortunate and grateful to say that I have finally found a career and community that I'm super stoked to be a part of. I love what I do and hope to be able to keep on learning and growing as a professional developer.

--> of the professional kind
Currently, I work as a front end developer at Vodafone . My team and I are reponsible for maintaining the online shop and building new features into it. It feels great to deliver quality experiences to our users online.
Before Vodafone, I used to work in a media agency, where I was able to do different kinds of projects. Some of them are:
Create a Chrome extension to make internal calls. This allowed an employee to click on a number and their telephone number would start dialing.
I have coded multiple online contests (Gewinnspiele). These projects have required registration forms, DOI’s, logic for winning and data management.
Create mjml templates so project managers can create newsletters easily.
I built a custom backend to allow clients or project managers to select the Instagram pictures that could be shown on the frontend of applications.
I created a repository where developers, myself included, could pull code-snippets to facilitate the process of coding new projects from recurring clients.

I enjoy to code on my free time. Whether it is following a course to learn something new, or to create something fun and even sometimes useful.
Some of the stuff I have enjoyed doing privately are:
For my wedding I created a small application with Node.js to connect with the GoPro wirelessly, record for 5 seconds, and then replay the clip in slow motion. This was great fun at the party and at the end I created a video of all the tiny clips.
I created this website in an effort to learn how React works. It's been a fun ride to learn new stuff.
I created this form validator for projects at work, because I was finding myself having to re-invent the wheel every time I had to code a form.
