Software Engineer

Motivated by solving problems, challenges and innovation, fond of new technologies. Interested in learning about how the world works, I spend a lot of time reading about history, physics, and the human behaviour. In my free time I play board games, drink beers, practice mountain hiking, play soccer, work out and experiment with technology.

IT interests/skills: Distributed systems, blockchain technology, software architecture, Golang, automated testing, Python, large-scale systems, Cloud computing, and automation.

Active learner

The best way to learn is to practice. That's why I built tens of weekend projects and participated in hackathons to try out technologies and concepts, or to bring ideas to life.
