Assets

My open mind and creativity help me find solutions that are not obvious. My determination and focus help me solve problems when they are not trivial. Even when under pressure I keep a keen eye on my goals. Not only am I eager to learn, I'm also a quick study.


Hobbies

When I find the time I like to read science fiction, fantasy, philosophy and technical books. Whenever possible I try to play around with exciting new technologies on my own servers. I also enjoy soldering electronics and programming Arduino.
