Hey there,


I am Nico & this is my stuff.

What I do

Full-Stack Web Development

I am very proficient as a solo developer but I also can be a great addition to any Team. Fullstack web development mostly using (but not limited to) LAMP + JS + CSS3/HTML5, along with several popular frameworks.

System Administration

All kinds of Linux flavors, Apache and Nginx web servers. Migrations, support, security, deployment and automation under any OS in which the TUX is the star.

Design / Illustration

Less experienced but equally passionate, I can work with Photoshop doing all sorts of stuff... from logo designs, app mock-ups, to Illustrations using my awesome Wacom Cintiq.

Just because I loss the track of time

Most of this work can be found in my sketches blog (drawnic.com), that's where I keep a log of the sketches that every once in a while just pops-up while I'm reasting the brain from so much programming
