About me

Being the most responsible person I know, I have successfully turned into a workhorse. I like to dig deeper always asking myself “why” and then, connect all the small dots and information and see a big picture. My constant drive has never allowed me to say NO to any new experience which has crossed my path and my curiosity has never let me to sit at the same place for a long time. I am an introvert and an extrovert hidden in the one person what helps me to fully understand the world around me. Like flâneur, I love to drift away and discover new places. On the other hand, I cannot survive without my assurances and without people around me. I love to challenge myself on daily basis and push my boundaries and knowledge further. I am a realistic dreamer, constantly wearing black and white, fueled by optimism and sarcasm.
