About Me

As an experienced engineer with a specialization in front-end technologies, I am always on the lookout for challenges ๐Ÿš€. My skills are particularly strong in React, Vue.js, and TypeScript, though Iโ€™m well-equipped to handle full-stack work. Proficient in establishing greenfield projects with best practices for easy maintenance and extension, I also quickly adapt to large legacy codebases, enhancing their structure and performance regardless of complexity ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ. My commitment is to delivering maintainable, clean, and thoroughly tested code.
