About

I am a Front-End Engineer focused on new and scalable technologies based in Prague. Being a consultant I have shipped solutions to small, medium and huge companies to grow their business and, mostly, help them meet their business goals, without leaving quality aside.

My passions are the design and implementation of front-end projects, open-source stuff and evangelizing cool technologies. I also try to be as active as possible in local communities and I really like to bring new stuff to where I'm invited to speak.

Things I can do

I’m a developer who loves exploring new territory, so I'm always looking for challenges related to any of my current areas of interest:

  • Front-end performance optimization
  • Scalable architecture patterns
  • Developer tooling
  • Functional and Reactive Programming
  • User Interaction design

Some technical keywords include:

  • JavaScript, TypeScript, and Swift
  • React, Preact, Next.js, and Gatsby.js
  • styled-components, emotion, glamor and just about any CSS-in-JS library
  • redux and related tooling (e.g. redux-saga, redux-act, reselect, etc.)
  • Bundlers and bundle optimization techniques

Life & Related

As I started working as a remote developer (~ early 2018) besides traveling a lot more through my homeland, I decided to travel and live a little around the world for a while – not staying for too long on any city.

These are the countries where I've been to in this journey:

Other activities include:

  • Mapping coffee shops around the city ☕
  • Going for a beer with my mates 🍻
  • Trying some different activities (e.g. skydiving, scuba diving, and hiking) 🤘
  • Capturing special moments with instant film 📷
  • Listening to basically all genres of music I can think of 🎶
  • Finding new places to watch the sunset 🌇
  • Gathering friends and family by the beach 🏖️
  • Being #1 fan of my lovely wifey, Jheniffer 💑
