Overview

I am an award-winning full-stack developer who is passionate about creating immersive experiences, complete with smooth animations, rich content and beautiful interfaces.

My work on websites, applications and unique experiences have brought the vision of clients to life and helped users interact with their favourite brands. Through my efficient workflow and meticulous development process, there is no moon (or star) too big to shoot for.

My background in graphic design and over ten years of coding, have allowed me to branch out into building apps and collaborating with international teams from Dubai to Uruguay. While always expanding on my technical skills, my appreciation for a great user experience informs my work process and style.

So, if you are in the business of capturing the attention of audiences worldwide, I am committed to creating functional products, which solve problems, entertain and are remembered.

M. is an integral part of any team. He is reliable, organized, creative, with an extensive skillset in his technical expertise. I've worked on several projects with Max, and in each, he's come to the table with new solutions to obstacles and challenges, creative ideas to push the work even further in terms of polish, and innovation, and is able to manage expectations realistically. He does all of this with a positive attitude, and with an upfront and transparent communication approach. Would love to have him on any project.
