about:Started programming when I was 9. Built my first game using assembler on Amiga 500 when I was 13. Later moved to C, C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript.

Founded a couple of open source projects, most remarkable being flamerobin.org, which is now the default administration GUI for the open-source FirebirdSQL DBMS. I got really close with people in that community (had beers with most core developers ;) and even presented some papers/sessions at three Firebird conferences. I also run the official Firebird FAQ website at firebirdfaq.org.

Wrote some shareware software available at guacosoft.com. Most successful product is a home-inventory application called Attic Manager.

From 2009 got interested into web space, but mostly kept alive by making accounting software.

Currently working on a puzzle game called Block Buster Billy, which can be best described as Baba Is You meets Math:
