Why Me?

I love applying engineering principles with technology to solve human and business problems. One of my favorite quotes is from Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of the C++ programming language, he said - "our civilization runs on software". This statement is impressively backed by reality, in which software controls a huge variety of devices, from cell phones and music players, to smart appliances such as microwave ovens and laundry machines, to personal computers that many people use at work and large mainframe computers that operate in governmental organizations. The fact that I can use software and systems engineering skills to tackle and solve challenges in various domains makes me an asset to any team.

I love to engineer programs. I love to design, write, test and maintain programs that run on many platforms with the purpose of solving challenges for many users. Creating robust and safe solutions that will be used for a long time is one of my primary goals Having a solution mentality is one of my paramount attributes. It's important to design programs that prevent problems when caught early instead of fixing them later. Albert Einstein - "Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them" .

My Hobbies

I love to read. Reading a book is an intensely personal experience; you can imagine a character and world in any way, giving things as little or as much detail as you wish. I am currently reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values.

Video Games: A huge fan of role playing games with XCOM being one of my all time favorites. League of Legends is another game I love to play.

I am an active judoka and have been practicing for 5 years. I hold a purple belt in Brazilian jujitsu. Recently, I have taken an interest in Wing Chun and would love to learn that as well. I was an amatuer MMA fighter with a 5-0 record. I love extreme sports and looking into getting my sky-diving license and gliding.
