My main interests are technology, business, and media. I’ve always been fascinated by the power of writing, and most of what I do revolves around it: code, documentation, organization, publishing. You can read my thoughts over at Kleia.
I’m a backend engineer at Blue Reply, working on information processing systems in the banking sector. I also advise companies on business and IT strategy, R&D, and innovation management as a freelance consultant. On the technical side, some of the tools I currently use daily are Python, Java, PHP, Spring, Laravel, Nuxt, Kafka, and Hugo. A few other areas I find intriguing are e-health, wellness, digital media, and intelligent transport.
