I’m Paulo Orquillo aka “lopau”, this is my personal blog and playground. I’m a creative technical guy with a knack for getting things done.

I’m a self-taught designer and developer. I initially started as a graphics artist way back in 1999 when I got my first gig by joining a logo contest and winning it. I then started a side hustle of offering graphic design services. I then grew my skills to learn HTML, web design, WordPress and Flash animations. As I progressed I eventually evolved into a web developer acquiring skills in Linux, PHP, MySQL, AWS and Javascript.

With a lucky break, I got hired in a company in Dubai as a remote web developer and during that time I came across Salesforce. Adding Salesforce as a skill proved to be the most valuable thing as there was a high demand for this.

Now I’m working as a Salesforce Technical Consultant for a leading Salesforce Partner in Auckland, New Zealand – Davanti Consulting.

I keep my web skills up-to-date by learning and trying new stuffs. Like web scraping with Python, building websites with Django or building Alexa skills. At the moment I’m dabbling with Node.js, Express, Mongodb and Bootstrap.

On the personal side, I’m a happily married guy with a loving wife and father to 4 daughters. I’m into personal finance, investing,  reading books, building passive income, traveling, tasting different kinds of beer, snowboarding, photography, mountain bikes and I love keeping my body fit by doing calisthenics exercise.

I am always looking for opportunities to learn, collaborate and improve my skills.

I have a Youtube channel where I upload “howto” tech stuffs tutorials. Check it out and subscribe Just Another Dang How To Channel also check my shirt designs for sale in Amazon.

Oh and also I’m now 13 x Salesforce Certified, check out my certifications.
