Long Story Short

I am a freelance full stack web developer traveling the world and living the life of my dreams.

I work remotely with clients from all over the planet on projects that are sometimes routine, frequently challenging, and occasionally downright frightening - but always, always: incredibly rewarding.

Me & My Team

Never in a million years have I thought I would grow up to be a coder. I didn't have any inclination, aptitude or talent even for writing code and I've always been famously bad with maths. Good coders I know like to reminisce about how strong they always felt about programming and how - early in their life - their natural ability for problem solving surfaced. Well, mine didn't.

In my early years, I opted to pursue a career in Foreign Languages - English and French Literature. This education was priceless, today it allows me to step over the language barrier with my clients and I still find this stage a very stable point in my life, one that contributed a lot to the person I am this day.

But it wasn't meant to be.
By the time I graduated from high school I realized that a career in Literature somehow lost it's appeal to me over the years. Nonetheless, it left me a lifetime legacy: the love for books and all things written. And most importantly, keeping a busy mind and an affluent imagination.

After graduating from high school I had plenty of time to decide what I wanted to do with my life. So I've done all sorts of things. I was a flower girl, a sales agent, shop assistant, baby sitter and cashier. But during this time I also started to build a closer and closer relationship with my computer and out of interest I found myself learning available graphical editing software. As I became more and more involved I realized this greatly engaging and demanding activity could very well be my choice of profession.

My decision to enroll in the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics at the University of Babeş–Bolyai, a prestigious Romanian university, came to as much surprise to my parents as it did to myself. After a shamefully low rating due to my lack of former mathematical education, I somehow, against all odds, was admitted to the university.

And there it all started. After the first few programming courses I knew I was at the best place possible and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The first year I had a very hard time making up for the missed years of programming education, while all my group members had a more advanced level of preparedness. But I had an effective weapon: an exceptionally strong will and an insatiable interest in the field.

And that's all you need to succeed I believe.

In the second year I was granted a scholarship for being one of the best students in my group. In the third year I was granted a scholarship for being the best in all the three groups of students who attended the university on my faculty. Now I possess a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and Information Technology.


I was lucky enough to be hired soon after graduating from university, and I worked as a back-end developer in Java for two and a half years. The guys I worked with were very talented and I learned a tremendous amount from them. Most importantly - and besides technical matters - I was taught how to work in an effective, productive, organized way and how to always embrace and apply new technology, being absolutely proud of it. This is a lesson you only learn from working with true professionals and it's a lesson that stays with you forever.

Having been a back-end developer I can appreciate more closely the impact my code has on server-side systems, that is why I am carefully piecing together every single project, spending more time thinking than coding and meticulously considering the environments my code will be used in.

I am working as a freelance web developer since 2011 and have more love for my work than ever before. I am very passionate about what I do and I can talk days and days and days of my practical experiences.

Since the launch of my career I worked with more than a hundred people from all over the world. I shared projects with designers, engineers, doctors, lawyers and basically everyone except Martians (as far as I know).

Even though I didn't plan to work in tech, I couldn't imagine doing anything else for a living.

Krisztina is really friendly, professional and goes beyond what is necessary to ensure the job is done perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone and hope to work with her again in future.

Daniel Keel

Amazing work completed before the dealine. The email looked stunning and was EXACTLY the type of design I imaged in my head. Communication was second to none and will absolutely use again.

Phil Wannell

I cannot speak highly enough of Krisztina. If you’re ever going to use anyone for CSS, HTML or Jquery (or all three) then this is the person. Perfect work, perfect communication a complete pleasure to deal with!
