I have extensive software engineering experience, recently I focus on Scala/Java and JavaScript. On the other hand, I have experience with C# and .net framework/core. I focus on integrating applications that are built against different frameworks and can run on different platforms.

Scalability, efficiency and performance are key topics for any software, that’s why I keep track of the newest technologies, I never underestimate the power of the cloud, that’s why I do believe in using this power with “edge applications” to expand software’s and solutions to a new level.

Being a software engineer who understand the business as well as my team, looking at things from different perspectives. Being open and honest and investing in relationship makes a big difference.
