He’s a polyglot who speaks couple of Java-ish and few Human languages. He wrote his first Hello
World in Basic on ancient ZX Spectrum and has been eating code for breakfast ever since. After work
he’s a huge Doctor Who fan and cheap-flight traveler. As a proper introvert he always thinks
inside the box, because it’s bigger on the inside.
Was working for a corporation for a while (learned lots of stuff there), now enjoying awesomeness of agile workplace at Spartez. A proud father of three and a happy husband of one. Fancies: crafting clean, quality code (constantly learning - Uncle Bob, please guide me!), running (hoping to run a marathon one day), progressive rock (weird rhythms and endless solos FTW!), mountain hiking.
