I have been developing software since 1987, and for the past five years I have been a software architect at Applied Materials. Prior to that, I worked in R&D management positions at a number of technology companies, including Verint, Nokia Siemens, and Comverse. I love to learn new technologies on the one hand, and on the other hand to embark on challenging treks around the world: I have done, among other things, the routes of the Tour de Mont Blanc (160 km) and Alta Via 1 (150 km).
