Who are we?

We are two software engineers who love to write, have a passion for education, and like to build software projects.

I’m a software engineer specializing in server applications and system-level software development, but sometimes I venture into the front end world too. Quite often I find myself taking a deep dive into a topic that tickles my brain.

When I’m not coding I like spending time outdoors, such as cycling, climbing.


After several roles ranging from writing to program and people management at large companies, I have found the most satisfaction when I have fewer meetings. That’s when I decided to focus on Engineering and am currently researching for my doctorate in visualization with deep learning and working as an engineer in virtualization.
