Hello.
I'm Constantin
I'm a web dev and maker in Chicago.

I am a full-stack PHP developer. From a very early age I've been fascinated with computers, which led me to pursue a degree in Computer Science. Later, I fell in love with web development and never looked back.
Currently I work full time as a Laravel developer, building internal apps and tools for my employer.
