About me

Hello, I'm Ivan! I enjoy creating things that combine engineering and the latest tech alongside business thinking and strategy. All of that wrapped up in an agile environment. I love to code and also love to give that code meaning by using my commercial expertise. Turning projects into opportunities for the betterment of their end-users as well as the company they are made for. I adore technology and how it can make our lives better. My passion started with game development and visual effects, then I moved to commercial and business development to see where best I can apply new technology. That leads me to today, where I want to directly engineer the projects I'm standing behind and drive myself and teams forward with my business mind.
