Information Technology, mathematics, engineering, and business have been my passion for more than 25 years. Have worked on programming languages ranging from assembly (Z80) to pascal, basic, fortran, C,C++, Java, CORBA and scripting languages vbscript, javascript, asp and php.
During my studies at MIT I tried to combine my passion for IT with my passions for engineering and business by adjusting my studies accordingly.
The outcome was an adjusted curriculum (with added IT courses) and a thesis for the Poseidon project which laid the platform for a distributed information technology environment for software collaboration. 

On my free time I train a team of small kids (techpops) teaching them programming and robotics using the lego EV3 and arduino boards.
