Why did you choose to freelance?
"I was missing an adventure. I worked for 5 years for a German startup but got tired of the same problems I saw every day and felt the need for new projects."
What project are you working on now with Teamway?
It’s an IT management solution. I’m working with 2 other programmers. It is a good start and a challenging project, exactly what I was looking for.
What’s your field of expertise?
I am a front-end guy. Been working with these technologies for 8 years. I like trying as many things as possible because every project needs a solution. If that requires some design, I’ll be up for it just to have a cool product at the end.
Why did you choose Teamway?
I stumbled into you, guys. Teamway got in touch with me and I thought you are cool. So I stayed and got a project sooner than I expected.
Fun fact about yourself?
A couple of years ago I used to do karate training. My first fight in a Kyokushin Karate competition was against a 14-year-old kid. I was 22 back then…. and lost so badly.
