About

Me, obviously

Writing about yourself is hard, isn’t it?

I’ve been doing computer stuff since 1994, but I started programming in 2004. First with little PHP/MySQL, then came .NET and Java, then the Oracle years, and now I’m settled in the land of Ruby, JavaScript, and dev-ops for the foreseeable future.

I’m a consultant who loves to work on interesting things, even more if they can help other people. I like learning about anything and everything. That is design, philosophy, and human psychology lately, but I’m interested in business, marketing, sales, and a healthy dose of fiction.

I like writing. I believe it’s one of the best ways you can learn to express yourself. It can boost your conversation skills, meaning you become a better speaker while becoming a better writer. In my free time I also enjoy cycling alongside the beautiful Croatian coast, as well as swimming in the sea during the summer.
