Ethical hacker, software developer and Entrepreneur.

As a software developer, I am responsible for the development of management software products produced by the company. My area of expertise includes programming languages like Java, Objective-C, C#, C++, PHP, Ruby and system administration. With more than 15 years of Desktop software development experience, I discovered that mobiles application programming is something that I would love to do for the rest of my life :)

I am very passionate about teaching everyday people topics that they are interested in. I think that in order to keep up with the latest technology trends your leaning process should be a continuous one.

The biggest goal for me right now is to motivate and inspire others through the form of knowledge. If I can inform someone of ways to achieve a healthy mindset or production solution that makes their life easier, I can officially say that I've done my job.
