Software engineer

"Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability." Edsger W. Dijkstra
By the time I realized that software development was always my passion. I was programming since my childhood when I was very focused to solve real-world problems not just writing cool code.
Right now I find myself in the position of following childhood dream, but with a varied educational background in the engineering field and fulfilling experience path.
