ABOUT

Here’s my story

My name is Marios Sofokleous but call me Mario for short. I am a web developer based in Cyprus.

I specialize in front-end web development, and I have hands-on experience building custom websites. I can replicate design mockups with code and convert HTML static sites to October, a PHP CMS platform based on Laravel.

I'm also a  publisher of free and open-source themes and plugins for October CMS.

I gained a foundational understanding of UI/UX design principles through custom web design projects.

I strive to build quality websites with a strong focus on performance, best practices, accessibility, and SEO.

Currently, I'm working on improving my skills and understanding of vanilla JavaScript and React.

In my spare time, I play volleyball, ride my bike on local trails, and swimming. My favorite hobby is flying FPV drones to capture amazing cinematic footage.

You can follow me on GitHub and LinkedIn.
