Welcome to Rafael M Santos Portfolio !
Who Am I?
My name is Rafael Santos, I'm 20 years old and I'm from this beautifull country, PORTUGAL. If you have not guessed by now, I am a full time Web Developer and most of my work is freelancing stuff. I'm currently taking a pre-degree in Construction and Website Administration, as this is my passion. I love logic and this kind of challenges, I guess that this quality is the reason because you are here in my Website and Portfolio.
So, I have four years experience as a web/back-end developer, at school, internship, personal works and 4 months freelancing. I like clean designs and clean code, so I always try to be organized and very clean in my methods. I always look to do stuff, the easiest way for the client(sometimes the hardest for me).
Services I will help you with
As a back-end developer I use MVC structures, I'm very familiarized with CakePHP and CodeIgniter, if you want me to use another language it will take time, but not much because I'm a fast learner. I also know a little bit of Wordpress.
I will give to you, some tips and advice for a good branding plan, and once again, everything I know in this department I learned from myself and working experience.
About my Goals
There are so many things that I need to achieve before dying. In terms of Web Development, I will build my company from scratch and have a nice group of friends working with me by my ideas, of course I'm no dictator, everyones opinion counts. This company will work in personal projects such as a Social Network I have in mind for years, but never had the courage to do it all by myself, and will work in some other projects from companies, poeples, events. This is my carreer goal.
Unfortenly, I never went traveling outside of Portugal (sad face). So I have a list of places to visit, and I'll add more and more here as I remember or as I get to know the existence of a new cool place. So, on top of my list is Peshawar in Pakistan(it started as a joke), bur maybe I'll save this one for "last", London, Paris, Italy in general, Moscow, Mount Roraima in Venezuela, New York, Canada in general... and more that I can't remember right now.
As you can see, I'll have a busy life, but thats awesome and I'm very excited
