About meI love everything-product from business models, user needs, and engineering frameworks to crisp user interfaces. I regard my colleagues as the most motivating part of my job.
Fun factI love almost all types of sports and do some once in a while. This comes in handy for the calories balance as I also like to eat (not cook) nice food. I get inspired by meeting new people with different backgrounds.
About meI am very lucky to head our team of amazing engineers at Capdesk! My main occupation is to be late at meetings.
Fun factI can sleep on demand AND I own close to 3000 small cars. I don’t have any other major issues.
About meI’m always taking notes about new initiatives. I do not ever trust that my future me will manage to come up with such greatness again.

About meBeing at Capdesk for 6+ years my job description is probably close to ‘Google for Capdesk’ at this point.

About mePascal was my first language ever used. PHP was my first language used in an actual job - but after a few years, I felt I needed to reconsider my life choices and started looking into Ruby. It was a great decision. Though, it doesn’t beat the joy of using Elixir in my side projects :)
Fun factMy wake up alarm can be only turned off by scanning a NFC sticker in another room. For some reason, it still works for me after so many years. Whenever I sleep away from home, I forget about it and have to uninstall the app as the alarm goes off.
About meI love designing experiences of all kinds. I'm pretty curious about the "why" of things, the way these work, the way these feel (you know ✨aesthetics✨- art school affected me way too much). So here I am, trying to create something that makes sense, looks cool, and is very easy to use.
Fun factMade my own gin. Went on tour with a band. Got my work in an art gallery. Co-wrote some songs. Created a perfume with my friends. Did theatre. And not to brag, I usually stab a cherry tomato with my fork on the first try.

About meI am passionate about product and especially fond of the OKR framework as a way to ensure that you continue to deliver value and not just push features. The foundation for any good product decision is data IMO. I love Todoist and it basically runs my life.

About meIn my very first internship, I started as a front-end developer doing jQuery but then moved on to back-end development after 6 months, thinking I’d never go back to JS madness again. 10 years have passed. I’m a front-end developer 🌚
Fun factI have some intense analysis paralysis when buying things - it took me a year to research and buy the perfect electric coffee grinder. The very next day I was already looking for another one.
