DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN A TWEET
CTO with over 14 years experience. I am addicted to #startupculture, I love to work
on products and see how an idea can become reality. I managed a software organization with over 100+ engineers and lots of projects on different #technologies like AR, VR, and IoT.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A CAREER IN DIGITAL?
I liked math. A lot. And I didn’t like to play piano, so I choose a computer keyboard. When I first started in the early 90’s and I saw that green text on a black screen from an IBM XT Personal Computer I was fascinated. I continued to do this because I saw a lot of opportunities in the computer world.
WHAT IS THE BEST CAREER ADVICE YOU RECEIVED AND FROM WHOM?
“Ignore what others say, continue to do what you do, and finally, you’ll see that everything will be alright.” – I got that from my Computer Science teacher in high school.
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE DIGITAL WORLD IS?
It was never my goal to build a billion-dollar company or product. My goal is to spread the word about technology benefits. I didn’t make apps that changed the world, but I worked on some that save lives. I will continue to share my knowledge with young creative minds and influence them to use technology in a meaningful way.
HOW CAN ONE FUTURE-PROOF HIS CAREER?
If you want to future-proof your career, first of all, be humble and make connections, learn about people around you and their needs. Second, read new stuff, practice and use what you think it makes you proficient and valuable.
