I stand at the bleeding edge of Finance and Computation, creating value, very well. These two fields are my passion, and in the past 13 years, I have written a number of software solutions for leading companies as well as managing substantially large portfolios for wealthy investors in the Middle East and London.

I am a Software Developer focusing on: numerical computation, data extraction, database implementation, data analysis. I have several certificates in Python, have developed several smart contracts with Solidity, and I am studying Clojure.

I am a Wealth Manager with a strong background in international investment. I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Investment Advice from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments - London, United Kingdom, and several other certificates in finance. I only offer this service to select private investors.

By combining these two fields I am actively involved in the FinTech industry, currently focusing on cryptocurrency investment initiatives as well as the decentralized smart contract revolution. I am a cryptocurrency blogger, smart contract developer, as well as part of consortia exploring business opportunities within this field.

I am a family man, exercise daily, eat healthily, don't drink alcohol or smoke. I do not watch TV or read news on the Internet that has no relevance to me. I am a focused machine.

Every project that I start, I finish. Every challenge that I face, I overcome. I am able to learn whatever technology stack is required to fix problems, and I look forward to learning more.

I have enough practical (technical) and theorical (insight) to do whatever is necessary for a project to succeed, and this is why clients love me. I have a substantial knowledge of computation theory, computation complexity and the history and evolution of computers as we know it, and where the computing industry is heading into the future.

I enjoy working on projects with a team that cares about creating quality, maintainable code.
