I started to learn programming at the age of ten and founded my first company while still in high school. For the last 8 years, I've been coding for my own startups as well as various employers, from individual card game developers to Fortune 500 companies. I created web applications for clients including Carlsberg, Generali, EDF, Arval and Amrop.
While my first programs where rudimentary desktop applications written in Visual Basic, I quickly became passionate about Internet and the possibilities it offers. I came across PHP, which was extremely popular at the time, and quickly went beyond building simple websites to discover more and more advanced algorithms. As I gained programming expertise, the language started to reveal it's bad design and I started to look for alternatives.
I'm a very quick learner and a man of many interests, passionate about spreading my knowledge with others. While still in high school, I developed a deep interest in philosophy, won or was a laureate of four national-level philosophy competitions and participated in the International Philosophy Olympiad. I started to attend university courses before graduating from high school and later studied philosophy, economics, law and physics. At the same time, I pursued my passion for programming, experimenting with multiple languages including, beside the ones already mentioned, Haskell, Prolog, Java and Ruby. I recently became fascinated with machine learning, particularly deep neural networks. I also used many database systems and started to work on my own, very expressive query language (oneQL). I hope to get back to that project soon.
