About me

Bio

I love building big ideas, turning complex into simple. being challenged by new problems is my biggest passion. I'm a software engineer, but I see myself more as problem solver in a wide-variety of domains. I'm interested in Distributed Computing, Cloud Computing, Green Computing, Risk Management and Software Development & Productivity practices.

Achievement

I've worn many hats in my career. programmer, team lead, marketer, mentor and strategist. As the result I have the unique ability to manage and work with transdisciplinary teams and approaches to navigate complex challenges. But actual experience has taught me that from what I enjoy the most is working with great people and have fun doing it.
