About me

Full stack developer, with experience in both corporate and startup environments, and a taste for building cool stuff.

I’m 24 years old, born and raised in Romania. I’ve learned everything I know on my own and by working with amazing people.

Front end web development is my strongest area, as that’s what I’ve done the most in the past 4 years. I don’t limit myself in any way though, over the years I’ve worked and played with many technologies from C/C++ to PHP, C# to D, Swift, and most JavaScript related things.

JavaScript is my favourite and by far what I prefer to work with.

Work experience

I’ve been lucky to meet and work with amazing people, they’ve taught me a lot and I’m grateful for that.

Security research

As much as I enjoy building stuff, I have a hidden passion for breaking things.

I love the whole adventure of finding ways to make programs and devices behave in ways they’re not supposed to. Over the years I’ve managed to get into some hall of fame lists.
