Who am I?

I did begin to play and work with computers at the elementary school when a computer was a device that almost nobody around me (including me) understood. Still, I had that privilege that I could play with them, learn English and try to understand what is going on (e.g., making my first graph in Quatrro Pro for Windows). During a short time, the computer and the internet became a standard. Everybody started to use them in some way or, for example, in some different packages that were available (e.g., smartphones). Still, my interest did not change, and computers are an essential part of my life, and I will always have a lot of passion for working and playing with them.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, fail, and fail again.
Never stop learning…

Currently, I am working for DellEMC as a Storage Specialist covering the CEE region, helping our customers and our teams.

What technologies I know, and what am I doing?

I am focusing on high-end and mid-range storage platforms, including all functionality and benefits.
