Hello, I'm Cristi!

I've been a professional developer for more than 18 years, specialising in building web applications and websites, using mainly Microsoft technologies, in industries such as e-commerce, real-estate, lawfirms, non-profit, art and more.

I am also a graphic designer, video editor and marketeer. I build websites and web applications, I am passionate about graphic design, branding and identity, marketing & e-commerce and a few other things. I am constantly looking for new ideas, solutions to problems and ways to automate things.

I'm husband of my childhood friend, Ane, father to four amazing girls and currently based in Sheffield, UK. Find out more about me.

I teach everything I know on this blog and also on my YouTube channel. See you there!
