I'm a software engineer, I love gaming, movies, reading and programming.
I love learning new things! I was studying for an LLB in Law but have decided to switch my degree to a subject more closely related to my field of employment.
I love to travel. I have seen most of Europe, some of the US, and hopefully it won't be to long until I see the rest of the world.
I love a challenge, building both technical and computationally difficult applications is where I feel most at home.
