Since over 15 years I have been connected to the IT, as a databases administrator, programmer, architect, manager and "engineer for the disaster recovery". I took part in small, medium and nonsensically big projects that had been conducted both in accordance with methodologies like "waterfall" or Agile and even without any methodology (with always the same result). That has driven me to a conclusion that what you are doing is not important as long as you are doing it right, using the simplest possible way and proper tools which can do the job for you. In the meantime I have become fascinated with ideas of TDD and Software Craftsmanship, to completely exploit and leverage ideas (so beautiful in their simplicity) like REST and NoSQL, just to abandon them for the sake of exploring the secrets of "system thinking" and to be marveled by the force of "metaphore" and discover that we are ruled by the same laws of the "nature".

I've made my first sushi on Nintendo DS (Sushi Academy - cut'n'slice game). Later I started to solve mysteries and look for murderers in the Art of Murder and Crime Lab series also on good old DS.

Meanwhile I’m helping a sweet girl named Kara to find her path (Path of Kara on Windows Phone and soon iOS). Then once again I find myself in the middle of a paranormal intrigue with Kate Malone (iOS iPad) but I manage to get out to fill my veins with adrenaline joining forces with characters of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in a fight for peace in the universe (PS4 to PC DLC port).
