Playing with entrepreneurship with this travel platform that sells tickets to different outdoors activities. A MVP business developed in Ruby on Rails hosted at Heroku using Stripe payment that I built from scratch. This project intends to explore the agile and iterative way to build a new and valuable product to outdoor events that connect explorers with travel guides.

Redesigning the arts culture platform for the government department was one of the greatest professional challenges that I have encountered. I joined the team at a critical moment in the project as a WordPress specialist and the results of the project were beyond expectations, with a new and redesigned portal for the user, and an easy way to publish the content by the editor using WordPress.
