Innovative, entrepreneurial and positively unsatisfied mind that constantly pushes the tech boundaries to create new solutions and devices that change people’s lives. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity of having a multi-disciplinary experience, which led me to wear the hats of: Architect, IoT Consultant (Internet of Things Consultant), Developer, Designer, Engineer, Server Admin, Consultant and Project Manager – to name a few. Based on this diversified background, I get projects done by following smart ideas and well-planned goals. In a world which is getting more unconventional by the day, I use unconventional ways, and a very healthy dose of integrity, to create devices and solutions that help companies go from a steady present to a dynamic future.
