Over the last 10 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using HMTL and Flash, including sites for startup companies and small businesses. My strength lies in my design skills. Besides that, I have design posters, brochures, ads or boxes. My first working days were as a graphic designer and I still loving it. Now I am finishing a HTML5 course in order to refresh and update my web skills. There are two more fields I do my living with, photography and writing. I have my photo website, www.fedenogales.com and I write for different companies, always in Spanish.

I am currently working at an IT firm and responsible for managing all Dynamics CRM and Salesforce projects. I have experience with data migration to Dynamics CRM since most of the projects I worked on required huge data migration and import. I have over 15 years of programming experience and have already created an application to migrate data between two separate instances of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I also have experience in working with Salesforce and ETL applications that will help migrate data from Salesforce to Dynamics CRM.

Programming has always been a calling for me, so it makes sense to do it for a living. However, I've got a number of other callings including music, photography, engineering, biking, baking and travel, so I don't want to put myself on a corporate career path that forces me into 1-week-off-per-year jobs. I've tried that and - luckily - escaped, hopefully never to return to Corporate America to discuss Facebook tactics with the Marketing Exec on a lunch meeting. My objective is to do what I love: to create and maintain beautiful solutions for small businesses and real people - to create logic from the chaos of life.
