Who am I?

Entrepreneur & Technical leader

Startup founder, leader, speaker

Software Security Designer & Architect

Quantitive trader

What makes me different is the way how I work. I examine client’s business and say how I can improve it. 

I started my career almost 20 years ago as a software engineer. I designed and coded a number of network utilities and service cores, where productivity was vital.

Then I focused on a cybersecurity field where worked with tech giants like Kaspersky Lab, IBM and Microsoft.

Recent 10 years I am focusing on AI technologies, developing my own modelling algorithms and technologies.

I have built over 30 projects in various industries and domains, which includes:

- Prediction modelling

- Mathematical statistics

- Software engineering and team leadership

- Big data analytics

- Network security threat modelling

- Threat and risk analysis

- Software security design

My work does not know borders - I work with international partners from USA, Australia, UK, Singapore, Russia, Ukraine, India, Laos, and Thailand.

I helped more than 100 customers to build the product of their dream or to optimise their current business processes.
