Who am I? What drives me in life?
I have always been someone who likes to try new things. This applies to both professional and hobby activities. I always try to find a middle way between analytics and creativity. The combination of both has enabled me to implement many successful projects to date. For me, it’s the only path I want to take in my life: Stay in the middle. My family and friends give me strength.
