My back story
I come from Cartagena, Colombia, studied my student years in St. Petersburg, Russia and moved to Finland in 2008. My field of study was Electromechanical Engineering, but my real interest was always in website design. After learning Russian and English, learning one more language was not a problem so I created my first website in 2004 with HTML code, using a program called Front Page (it was the Windows XP time, can you believe it?). This was when I understood that creating websites is what I want to do.
As my background suggests, I am fluent in four languages (Spanish, Russian, Finnish and English).
How did my story with WordPress begin?
I was introduced to WordPress by a friend, after asking him how his website looked so good and was made in such a short period of time. I dove into the WordPress world and it was love at first sight. I learned through WordPress tutorials online, and after working with the basics I continued by buying my first premium theme. I created my first WordPress website in 2013 for my own dance school.
I love precise work
After publishing and using my first WordPress website I began to realize many things that I didn’t see during the design process.
- How fast my page loads
- Is my website optimized for search engines (SEO)
- What happens to my website if I update my WordPress installation
All of this made me interested on creating my own WordPress themes and get the best performance and functionality possible. So I decided to become a WordPress web designer.
You don’t have to take my word for it, see for yourself what clients have to say about my work:
This guy did an AMAZING JOB! I have to say it this way! I have changed my web page 4 times, never satisfied with the results. Seems that nobody understood what the concept was or what services/features we supposed to show and work there. From too complicated, not being able to update the page myself (having to pay extra-work to have it updated almost daily) to too simple with no personality and not being able to sell the products at all! After my disappointments, I decided that I needed to try at least one last chance. THAT WAS IT! Form the first moment I felt that he understood what I needed and I got the feeling that this time I will finally have a clean, pretty, practical and interactive easy to use web page for me and for my customers. From a technical point, I honestly had no idea where to start, where to go.. I was lost. Mauricio didn’t leave me alone He even told me technical things I did not know, gave guidance with best easy practices. Right now I am not afraid on going to my page and play with it!
My company received a website that serves our clientele well and looks professional and good. The updates really are easy to do. All my wishes were heard and communication was fast and easy. I warmly recommend the services of Designnify to everyone.
