I wrote my first line of code back in 2008. From then on, I got totally hooked and dedicated myself to write code with combination of User Experience design as my full-time job.
My first clients were clients of SubsetM (which was part of EMI group). Over 90% of them were artists and musicians. I started as a Designer. I designed logos, CD covers, banners, merchandises, myspace pages(wow! I feel so old!), websites, etc.
My experience of coding was below zero, then a situation from a client came up ~ I needed to educate myself a bit of coding.. tadaa.. The rest is history.
With my limited coding skill + better experience with design, I got hired by 80beans. 80beans is an Application development company using Ruby on Rails.
Looking back, I think I was very lucky. They saw my enthusiasm & passion in learning. I feel so grateful that I started on the right path. They were good, fun, and really nice people. I have learned so much from them.
I got signed at Mangrove in Rotterdam. Mangrove is a digital agency with a strong focus on user experience. We design and develop apps, responsive websites and online platforms with a clear goal: creating the best user experience.
Front end architecture is still my main field, however at Mangrove I learn so much more than just developing. I am involved with clients & designers more than ever before. I gain more knowledge in User Experience, Interfaces, and Wireframing.
Not only that, I am also having several fun side projects that I am very passionate about. I really enjoy hack battle. It's fun, hectic, & brain-twisting.. Such an adrenaline ride for me. Moreover, I love meeting other cool developers and talk nerdy to one another.
I also do several chosen freelance project for designing landing-pages & frontend code. So if you're interested, shoot me.
