Ever since I was a kid, I have been passionate about computers. I’m not going to lie to you; at first, the passion was entirely about playing computer games…

But I quickly got curious about how you could make your own computer games, so I went to the local library to borrow books about the topic, and as I opened the books, a whole new universe unfolded in front of my eyes as I realized that computers were not only for entertainment, but also for creative expression. And while still in school, I taught myself multiple programming languages from Turbo Pascal to JavaScript.

When I got my first professional software engineering job at Accenture, I was so proud to learn that my programming skills could make a positive difference for other people and even in the business results of important companies. Software development was no longer just a fun hobby, but a tool to make the world a tiny bit better.

But I soon realized that if you want to make a real difference, you cannot do it alone, you need to be part of a team of great engineers to have the skills and capacity needed to make a true difference. So I got curious about how you lead software teams, and I started an amazing journey that took me from being a software engineer to becoming a CTO.

Today I’m an experienced software leader who on his best days is described as a visionary and inspiring leader with tons of drive and passion to make cool new software products that seek to delight the users.
