I live in Edinburgh and spend most of my time on programming and philosophy. I'm originally from Bucharest. I moved to Manchester to study, where I got a degree in computer science. After spending a little bit of time in Berlin, I managed to move to lovely Basel in Switzerland, where I ran a software company and studied computational biology. In 2022, I decided to shut down the company I had been running for 10 years and move back to the UK to research the philosophy of work and create open source software. You can more or less see this journey documented on the photos page.
I've been programming since I was 14, and I've written software for companies from small to large, including the University of Oxford, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the University of Copenhagen, the EPFL, Engie, the Swiss Post and the Romanian Government.
I work on open-source software:
I also have extensive experience teaching programming, both in professional settings and online.
