About me

I'm a passionate Computer Engineer with a great logical thinking. I look for smart solutions to every problem I face daily and I never say that something is impossible, I know of only few things that really are. I especially like the web and mobile application development and UI design. I'm currently working for IBM Research, building tools for Quantum Computing.
