Interesting about me
How it all began
In 2009 I had a six months IT internship in Jordan, where my company Sloboda Studio comes from. It was there that I learned basic Ruby on Rails technology and started getting my first orders. Based on this, I have certain sympathies for the Arabs. In my opinion, their mentality is very similar to the Ukrainians. I also have a good attitude towards Muslim culture, and of course, I do not accept terrorism in any form.
Favorite city
My favorite city is Berlin. This is a very peculiar city that is very different from other European capitals. For most, he may seem poor, variegated, and at the same time insanely tolerant. There is a deep history in it. I also generally like German and European culture.
I love learning languages
I learned English quite late, at about 24 years old, but I speak and write it quite fluently. For the first year and a half I spoke with my daughter only in English. She even remembers something else in this language. Now I am studying German, in November in Berlin I passed on B2. And now I am preparing with a teacher on C1. I also studied Chinese and Arabic for half a year, but did not advance further.
Love sports
Now I do yoga, I do jogging professionally with a trainer and individually - rock climbing. There is also mountaineering in my sports life, but to fairly simple peaks, up to the 3rd category. From ascents to famous peaks - Kazbek, the highest point in Georgia; Mont Blanc - the top of the European Union; Damavand is the highest peak in Iran, and of course, Hoverla.
I am a vegetarian
I have not eaten either meat or fish for the last 15 years and I feel great) The main reason is that I feel sorry for the animals and I do not want to be involved in the murder machine. Vegetarianism does not prevent me from doing sports at all, I do not feel any problems, perhaps on the contrary - an additional source of energy. At the same time, in my family, my wife and daughter eat up a little meat.
Visited about 40 countries
Most of them were travel for work or volunteer projects, not tourism.
He took his parents three times and several on independent trips.
Obod party
Once he gathered all his paternal relatives and organized an Obod-party for 30 people. The whole family played paintball, looked at the family tree and old photographs. I try to financially and morally support my relatives.
Volunteer background
Previously, he actively participated in volunteer and social projects - working with schoolchildren with the course "School without Aggression", EURO 2012, exchange internships at AIESEC - in Ukraine, Germany, Spain, Jordan and China.
