PHILOSOPHY & STRATEGY
The work of a web developer is to innovate. To push the boundaries of what previously seemed impossible. I push myself every day to the bleeding edge of what was impossible yesterday.
- Sergio Masellis
My development philosophy is to do the best work you can today. Learn, explore and work hard. These things have pushed me to learn every day of new approaches to old problems.
I wholeheartedly believe a leader is not someone who delegates but instead a teammate who pushes his team to be better than himself. It helps to know a thing or two about the scrum and agile process.
Design is the approach taken to reinvent what was once old. To create something someone can easily understand. Design is the language of the binary and analog world.
Over the years I might have learned a thing or two about Interactive media's and here are a few of the skills might find interesting.
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT ME
Sergio is an extremely detailed jack of all trades. When introduced, I always refer to him as the everything web and mobile guy. There hasn’t been a project to big or too small for him and that’s what makes him so valuable. No matter what he is assigned to I know it will be exhausted with all of his creativity and skill. It is a pleasure to work with him, and he would be a very valuable asset to any company.
