    if I should summarize into one sentence my professional past and present it would be: "I help to solve startling problems come from absurd situations" I didn't believe in coincidence but it happened by coincidence: I like crisis situations, I mean I like resolving them. I believe the core of most of the problems is un-clarified communication, improper coding and decoding, "Lost in Translation" effects. So, I am kind of problem solver who is really a translator. If I should analyse my last 20 professional years from an ordinary point of view 4 peaks could be clearly marked: - marketing; - media (on- and off-line, from the making to the distribution); - security, focusing on video surveillance (CCTV); - launching new products and brands.  less

    I am in full time higher education (University) studying for a Masters (Hons.) in Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology. Such a subject requires me to have a wide range of skills, good time management and the ability to logically approach tasks given to me. Over the past several years, I have worked on the occasional project developing my skills in basic programming, and web design; which equates to approximately two years of professional experience. Two years prior to University, I taught myself the LaTeX typesetting language; know it was the industry standard for typesetting Physics, Engineering and Mathematical documents. Since then, my skills in LaTeX have grown to include AMS-LaTeX equations and BibTeX referencing. More recently I have extended my skills further to included being able to write basic custom packages and classes. I have used Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems and comfortable on all three. I look forward to gaining more professional experience, improving myself and my skills, and your company.  less
