Simon-Chercka-2017Personal

I’m 38, born and raised in South Africa to Danish parents which made me bilingual and also a “3rd culture kid“. We moved to Denmark when I was 10, and later I spent 3 years in the US coming-of-age.
In 2015 my family and I relocated to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I currently work as a WordPress developer for PeTA through TEKsystems.

Professional

I have 18 years of experience creating digital products and managing digital projects. From 2009-2015 I worked as a Digital Project Manager for two agencies in Copenhagen. I provided solutions for some of the country’s largest companies and freelanced for smaller ones across the globe. I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and an M.Sc. in Digital Design & Communication from Copenhagen’s IT University.  

Skills

I’ve been managing digital projects for 7 years, doing front and backend development for 6, using mainly WordPress and PHP, CSS, HTML and Javascript.
