A little about me
At 13, I took an offer for my first paid IT job – administrating a Linux-based server, doing web-design and programming. All the while, I kept exploring my second great interest – art, by learning to play the piano and later studying acting. When I was 15, I was earning enough to fully support myself, and I never took a penny from my parents since.
When it came to deciding my future, I was faced with a dilemma – a degree in Computer Science or the Arts. Since I was already the closest person to the CTO of the company I worked for, and thoroughly enjoyed the artistic minds, I was more inclined towards the latter. Open to new challenges, I finally set out to study in a foreign country, one that I’ve never been to back then – the UK, where I found a course which combined arts with technology.
For the past couple of years, I have been defining myself and designing my personal philosophy. Out of all work, I love to find creative ways to optimize processes – especially those low-level ones that are usually hidden by the hindsight bias, in the way we experience our tools and interact with them (UX).
Using my knowledge, ideas and curiosity for further scientific research, I am now on a quest to seek out, optimize and reimagine specifically those processes, which have the greatest positive impact for humanity, all the while learning to become a better person myself.
