Between 2012 and 2016 I was a core team member and then the CEO of a startup. Shelly Cloud was an automated hosting platform that made the deployment of Ruby applications painless.

I'm not a professional artist but I really enjoy spending my free time drawing. My favorite technique is pencil drawing. I know how to use all popular graphic software including 3D software like Blender. I was self-studying character design and animation. I was also working on procedurally generated graphic and physics simulations. I participate in drawing challenges like Inktober. Below you can see some of my work.
I was playing piano as a kid and after years of break, I'm relearning it. In 2021 I started attending jazz piano school and studying music theory. I know how to use DAW software. I was producing beats and designing sounds for my animations. You can listen to some of my work below.
My other hobbies besides coding, building products, drawing, and music are: climbing and board games.
