Curriculum Vitae & Bio
In a nutshell...
I was born in Minsk, the Republic of Belarus, on the 8th February of 1985. Frankly speaking, I was a rather unspectacular kid, playing football with my brother Alex and trying to explore computer world. My school years passed by as if they never existed. I used to attend a gymnasium which laid an emphasis on maths and natural science. There I've found my real friends and started to build up my personality. There I started to indulge my passion for programming and computer science. But at the same time it was there where I began to see my existence from different point of view.
While being 14 years old, I wrote my first article, which was published in a weekly Belarussian computer-oriented newspaper in July 1999. In the age of 16 I moved to Germany, having not a clue about German language. I confronted new mentality, new society, new life. I faced new difficulties and challenges. But I also faced new hope and explored a hitherto unimaginable development of my personality. I realized that I have become a person with its own, personal history, a person who has a past which is completely different from its present - and apparently - future life.
So here I am. Now if I see in the mirror I see a 20 years old bloke, having an own understanding of reality, full of self-confidence, hope and desire. Now I am different and I have different people around me. What happens to me now is what I am experiencing. This is my life. And it's just my existence.
