Interests

treadmill-desk

Apart from studying and learning everything I can about technologies I also like to have a passion for statistics, I like to study trading and predictive analytics and building ML tools and bots.

In my free time, I like to read and listen to audio books about a wide range of topics from psychology to health and fitness.

I am a huge advocate for remote working as you can build your own office just the way you like it. Saving hours of time and stress that comes from commuting and it's much more environmentally friendly and in todays climate safer too.

I personally have a standing treadmill desk which would be hard to have installed at any office and an under desk cycling machine. I also feel it shows complete trust between employer and employee. Also when you work with several clients as we do at a digital agency, you are working remotely 90% of the time anyway.
