Profile

The things I do, require intuition, flexibility and an eye for detail. I am definitely not a unicorn but When something new comes up I get the sense of it pretty quickly even when it is not directly related to my "profile". Once upon a time, early in my "graphics-only" days, I was asked to build a website based on a CMS nobody ever heard of with no plugins or documentation to help and for any custom feature I had to face SQL and Perl! Easy thing for a developer but for me it was the time to evolve.
