I used to live in London UK for 6 years. Now I live in Nitra (Slovakia) with my wife Zdenka and 2 daughters. I work fully remote for the UK job market (since 2016).

In my free time I enjoy metal music, play drums, bass and train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

I also create side projects no one use but it's fun and I learn stuff.
