About Me

I’m an engineer with 4 year experience creating and building full-stack applications, participating in all the phases of software development. I was the only developer for 3 years in my last job. I’m mainly a Meteor full-stack developer, but, I have always thought, that what I can learn is more important than what I already know. I’m looking for new opportunities, ideally working remotely in a startup.
