More About Me
About

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

When I was a child I always felt inclined towards the arts. I loved drawing, painting and spending time in my father's studio. He is an architect and I probably owe him my interest about the design world.

But I also was very curious about computers. This was the early time of the PC and I could not help to dissassembly every computer we had at home and started communicating with the machine using primitive programming languages. It was fascinating!

When I got to college I faced a difficult decision. Should I pursue the artistic path and study Architecture or Arts, or should I turn to Engineering and Computer Science. I finally chose the latest hoping that some day my two passions would join again.

And they did.
