Born in 1983 in Hamilton Ontario Canada. At an early age I went to Greece, where I grew up.

I studied at Technological Institute of Athens in the field of Informatics (Computer Science) for 4 years.

At the end of 2006 I returned to the city that I grew up, Livadia, Greece and for two consecutive years I worked in the IT and computer networking company Microdata Ltd. as computer technician. I also undertook the construction of websites for several clients of the company Microdata Ltd.

At the same time, I managed to get the CISCO CCNA certification regarding computer networking knowledge with honors. That was a result of an 8-month intensive course and workshop activities on computer network technologies and internet structure.

Since 2010 I worked as a web developer in Plushost.gr, a web development company focused on e-commerce, located in Trikala, Greece where I gained experience in PHP, MySQL, Smarty (a template language), and in Javascript (jQuery). I also became an expert in HTML/CSS and CSS3.

Having experience in online Marketing (SEM), I have been also certified as a partner in the web advertisement platform of Google, Google adwords specialized in Display Advertising.

In 2012 I moved back to Canada. Now I live and work in Montreal as a full-stack web developer, PHP Web Developer, front-end web developer.

From 2012 to 2016, I worked in Em3 Services. As a lead PHP Web Developer, I worked in many custom development projects using Symfony 2 and Codeigniter PHP frameworks. I also developed many responsive websites with WordPress and Joomla. My job included communication with the clients to assess their requirements and needs, create the project description and help calculate the time needed for completion of the project.

Since October 2016, I work in Mentel Inc. as a full-stack web developer where I build web applications using Symfony 3 PHP framework and Javascript framework Angular js.

My goal is to grow as a PHP web developer and to evolve my skills.
