I've been working as a freelance web developer and writer / editor since 2000. During the early years, I have come to specialize in coding websites from scratch (front-end and back-end), at first using PHP and MySQL.
I can implement pixel-perfect HTML5 / CSS templates based on images / Photoshop designs, and I also have experience in coding custom admin panels / CMS systems, when needed.
Very fast, professional and with excellent communication, Stokky went above and beyond requirements and was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely use this freelancer again and highly recommend him.
