I finish every project that I start. I overcome every challenge that I face. I am able to learn whatever technology stack is required to fix problems, and I look forward to learning more.

I have enough practical (technical) and theorical (insight) experience to do whatever is necessary for a project to succeed, and this is why clients love me. I have substantial knowledge of computation theory, computation complexity and the history and evolution of personal computers. This is my foundation in trying to predict where the technology industry is heading towards in the future.
