Interests

Apart from being a developer, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the winter, I am an avid skier. During the warmer months here in Moscow, I enjoy autosport and walks in the park and night city.

When forced indoors, I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the development world or reading books.
