I started coding in C++ and Assembly while in high school some time in the 90s. Later on, I continued on to studying Information Security @ RSUH and working as a software engineer in Moscow. After moving to Silicon Valley, I co-founded Exchange3D.com, URMyStar, Citybot, Runbuk and worked with several other tech startups. For a few years I also worked on Zimbra Admin UI and Zimbra Platform and was lucky to collaborate with some amazing people. Now, I work at Cloudera managing the very talented team behind Apache Kudu. Also DJing, composing, riding a motorcycle and traveling around the world.
