Francisco Perez

I'm a Software developer with experience working with Ruby on Rails, React/Redux, HTML, CSS, and Javascript. There's nothing more satisfying than solving a difficult problem with a few lines of clever, efficient code. Apart from being a web developer, I'm a huge cinephile, tv junkie, and all-around pop-culture appreciator. I'm also a big fan of literature, both classic and contemporary. When I'm forced to go outside I also enjoy jogging and sightseeing.
