About Me

"Deprived of meaningful work, men and women lose their reason for existence; they go stark, raving mad." - Fyodor Dostoevsky

The day I realized you could type words that made machines do your bidding (insert sly supervillain smile) was the day I found meaningful work. My first exposure to programming was back in 2006 when I studied C and C++ as a part of my educational path to becoming an engineer.

I was instantly won over by this concept of man and machine meeting each other half-way to communicate. My one regret from that period is not focusing my education in that direction immediately - instead, I kept up with lots of university classes that I had less interest in, which delayed the beginning of my active coding career by a few years. I did learn a lot, both in university and outside of it, in that time period - but I still feel like I could have pursued my passion more fiercely back then.

"The Sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older." - Roger Waters

Shortly after graduating in 2010, I focused all my efforts entirely on software architecture and web development. My back-end laguange of choice is PHP because of its flexibility, popularity and immense community. The first framework I used was CodeIngiter but ultiimately I moved on to the more modern Laravel. I soon became acquainted with front-end technology (Javascript and its many libraries and frameworks) as well as database theory which I applied to diverse MySQL projects.

Since then I have worked on a plethora of projects for clients from all over the world (click here to see).

Other interests of mine include artificial intelligence, machine learning, game theory and various applications of programming concepts to real-world problems. I have also taken some interest in other branches of natural and social sciences through online courses (see list on the right).
