Hi, I'm Kevin Ariza!

Software Engineer - Web, Mobile & Backend 🚀

Kevin Ariza

Hello there! I am a passionate Software Engineer 🧑‍💻 with over 5 years of experience in building things that live on the internet. Whether it's crafting rich frontend experiences, developing scalable mobile applications, or engineering robust backend systems, I thrive on the challenges and creativity that come with full-stack development. With a solid foundation in React, Python, and Node.js. In my spare time, I'm also diving into game development with the Godot Engine.

When I'm not coding, you'll find me spending time with my family 👨‍👩‍👦, lost in a good book 📚, or reconnecting with nature on a tranquil retreat 🌳. I believe in lifelong learning, sharing knowledge, and building meaningful connections both within and outside the tech community.
