Hello! My name is Raul and I am a web developer living in the Washington DC area. Since I can remember, I've always been fascinated with creating things with my hands. Whether it was taking apart something and putting it back together or playing with legos, it always gave me a feeling of accomplishment. I decided to take it one step further and pursue web development! Combined with my love for working on a team, it seemed like it was the right career path for me after 8 years working in Operations Management. I've always enjoyed working with people to achieve a common goal. The feeling of deploying a new site that you know you spent many hours on is an incredible feeling, not to mention when you get to share it with people! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my dog Bogart and skateboarding. It goes hand in hand with my love for traveling and has taken me to some amazing places. I'm a firm believer in taking time to recharge myself after putting serious work in. Give's me time to think about what goals I want to achieve next as well as enjoying new scenery and experiences. Not mention I have a huge obsession for dogs!
