Personal

When working on something, I try to give it my best. Even after a project is considered finished, I’ll try to find ways to improve it even more.

Being more backend oriented, I enjoy working on things that are under-the-hood. I am also interested in creating tools and libraries that improve developer productivity.

I’m very curious and adventurous by nature, always willing to try out new things. Whether in personal or professional life, I constantly strive to improve myself.
