curriculum vitae.

Hrvoje Fucek

about.

I am a versatile and creative designer and developer experienced with all stages of the development cycle for dynamic web and print projects and motivated by challenging projects and deadlines. I embrace experimentation and I’m not afraid to be wrong. While having a strong background in project and budget management I am also well-versed in numerous operating systems, applications, tools, web standards and scripting languages.

I don’t like to define myself by the work I’ve done rather by the work I want to do. I want to keep learning, continue challenging myself, and do interesting things that matter.

I am also very passionate about volunteering and giving back to the community. It's extremely rewarding to help out and make a difference in another person’s life. It doesn’t have to be big. It can be something small, such as making someone’s day and making them smile. :)

I drink coffee, play board games and I am a genuine Star Trek fan.
