I seek for respect not the attention, it last longer.

Did you know that 90% of digital "data" ever created was created in last 2 years?

I’m inspired by possibility to change the way people look on world by processing, analyzing and visualizing the digital data. A virtual representation (digital twin) of any physical asset or process can be used to understand and predict the counterpart’s performance. The future is digital, where most of decision is and will be taken in front of the screens.

In free time I enjoy trading and investing in digital assets (aka. "cryptocurrencies"), exploring blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies as my hobbies.

Thoughtsthat define me well

The greatest leaders are measured with number of leaders they create not the followers they have

CFO: what will happen if we invest into our people and they leave us?
CEO: what happens if we don't and they will stay?

If You want to go fast, go alone. If You want to go far, go with others.

Seek for respect not the attention, it last longer.

Make more moves and less announcements
You can't change your destination in one day, but you can change the direction

Your mind is like a bank, what you deposit is what you can withdraw.

The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

Success is a journey not a finish line

I have never met a strong person with an easy past
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

It takes very powerful man to be with a powerful woman.

A man with dreams needs a women with a vision

Remember why you started
