Dreamer. Hacker. Programmer.
I worked as a researcher of REST applications replication systems (authored couple of papers which will never be cited). Then I decided that agile is much more interesting and moved to business. Now I enjoy new challenges working for Guestline. I am enthusiast of stuff that works, and brilliant solutions.
