I am of the opinion that the skills you can show are more important than how much experience you have. But having said that, I already have a handful of years from various agencies, as well as experience as a freelancer thrown on top.

Over the years I worked on everything from small to big projects. Everything from simply implementing web designs in WordPress to creating complex web applications with a focus on performance optimization and database structure.

I see myself as being a "Full Stack" developer on the basis that I feel fully comfortable in both frontend with animation and styling down to the smallest detail, as well as backend with a focus on safety, performance and structure. While over time also having been covered thoroughly in areas such as server setup, POSIX console, version control, project management and web design and UI/UX. To name just a few.

Michael is among the very best people I´ve ever worked with. Extremely tightly organised, very knowledgeable about his field, patient and methodic in his approach. Apart from his code-centric skills, Michael has a great eye for UI design and web design. I´d feel extremely secure having Michael on board as part of my web development team.

William Paix

Digital Developer at Dreyer+Kvetny

Michael is a very skilled developer. He is good at asking critical questions in the initial phase and coming up with alternative solutions to possible challenges. When a project has begun, he works hard and focused. And even when a project drags on, he retains a focus on the small details and makes sure everything gets done properly.

Esben Bie

CEO at AndBie Creative

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Michael for the last half year on various web development projects. I probably can´t make room here for all the good things there are to say about Michael, but some of the keyboards are thoroughness, structured, creative, independent, industrious and above all, a good colleague. I sincerely hope we get to work together again.

Kasper Siggaard Andersen

Senior Developer at AndBie Creative

I worked with Michael at Dreyer+Kvetny. Michael has an excellent ability to effectively listen and to proceed with each task at hand, both large and small. He is the first developer I had met who actually codes the design he is given. He has an eye for details and structured work style. He was keenly devoted to his work, but being a real people person, he was also enjoyable to be around.
