About me

I'm a passionate programmer who loves to work on all sorts of projects, from simple web solutions to large game projects.

I am experienced in managing Linux server systems, developing high-quality software in all kinds of programming languages and keeping them up to date with the users' requests.

Apart from programming I also like photography and playing the guitar.
