About me
I am a software engineer at The Dots. As much as I love helping to build a team of very talented people, my passion still lies on the architecture and implementation of systems that drive robust web applications, which tackle complex business requirements and needs. My formal education in engineering and my deep interest in all fields of design and human behaviour resulted in more than ten years studying and thinking about interactive interfaces. Now, I try to solve problems regarding performance and scalability and improving both the user and the developer experiences. I am an advocate of learning by doing, and I always try to push myself by experimenting on a broad range of fields, from computer science to film making and photography, from design to human psychology and behaviour, and how they can somehow interact with one another.
