Hi, my name is Sol Chikuse. I am software engineer and digital creative working at the intersection of code, design and graphics. I have developed web applications, designed websites, print ads and outdoor material as well as created 3d animations for TV.
For software development, I love to work with Python, Django and React among other software technologies. As for graphic and digital design, I work with Adobe Creative Cloud software packages and Cinema 4D. When I am not coding or designing, I am playing the guitar.
