I was born in Bari, southern Italy, along the Adriatic side of the Italian peninsula.
My interest in web design started in 2003, few years after I have discovered WordPress and never looked back.
In 2005 I have created CiaoWeb, you maybe wondering why this name for my company? Because the word “ciao” (to pronounce “ch ow”) is universally known as an Italian way to say “hello” and the word “web” is just about the Internet so merging the two words I meant to give a clue that this company is in someway connected with Italy and the world wide web.
I am self taught because when I started I didn’t see around any traditional college providing all I wanted to learn, I have joined paid membership websites about web design and that was a good choice but most of my knowledge come from my daily activity as WordPress Designer. I am the typical “learn by doing person”.
My skills set include HTML, CSS where I am strong, PHP and jQuery at basic level. My knowledge of WordPress CMS plus many popular plugins like Gravity Forms and Toolset Plugins is at advanced level.
The Table below summarize the web design languages that I know and WordPress frameworks and Plugins that I use for my web development.
In 2013 I was searching Google for plugins that can help on speed up website development, I was lucky enough to discover the Toolset Plugins, these powerful set of plugins allow me to build or extend literally any kind of website powered by WordPress.
Recently I have started deploying the Toolset Starter Theme that is based on Bootstrap and I must say that I am getting in love with it especially because you can do web development using the Layouts plugin, the chance to make my clients happy are now very high, with this powerful combination of one of the best responsive theme of the market that is Bootstrap plus the incredible power that come from Views, Types and CRED
I can build dynamik WordPress responsive sites, that means that they are accessible at any screen size, user friendly and loved by the search engines. This site is entirely built with Toolset Plugins.
I can work with any WordPress theme and know very well the Genesis Framework and Bootstrap. Just to recap:
By using custom post types, custom fields and custom taxonomies, I can extend your website functionality as your business grow and you need to upgrade your site accordingly.
