About Me

My name is Rafael Alvarado Emmanuelli, I'm a programmer and a designer. There is a great rift in this industry between those two groups. This rift does not exist for me. My passion for creating beautiful, fully interactive work extends through both sides. I have a strong belief that any boundaries we have are self-imposed. There is satisfaction to be found in both of these equally-important roles, and I plan on conquering them both.
