The man behind scenes:

Alfredo Saavedra (Alfie)

Although I have a degree in mechanical engineering, I have decided to persue my passion: communicating and expressing ideas through art and technology. I always had an inclination for the arts, first by drawing and painting, and now after I taught myself how to use more advanced tools for web and graphic design, and gained real world experience, I have decided to establish myself as an independent freelance web designer.
