I like to figure-out how things work. I've studied applied math, and spent more than a decade in software development performing various roles. My first programming language was Delphi. 

I believe software should help people become even more awesome. I don't like when software products exploit human neurochemistry.

At current moment I'm into cloud platforms - I hold AWS Certified Solution Architect Professional certification.
