An engineer in the bottom of my heart. On the continuous quest for finding a common language between the business and the technology. Used to dress in white or black, today I find myself better in-between, in gray hues. Fascinated about mental models, psychology, communication, learning (and teaching) and software architecture. I hope to never stop asking the "why?" question.
