I'm a Software Developer in the Trados Enterprise team within RWS Group where I'm responsible for building the best cloud translation management solution. Besides the work that I do at my current company, I like sharpening my skills at home as well by picking up new books, learning about new technologies or doing a Devoxx presentation. The single most stimulating advice that shaped me professionally is leave the code cleaner than you found it, an advice that now encapsulates my work ethic. When I'm away from my laptop I enjoy reading thriller books, playing board games or basketball.
