About
My passion

I am a QA professional with 10 years of experience. I started working as a part-time QA during studies, moved to the UK in 2015 and gained knowledge in test automation, agile methodology, cloud technology and engineering management.

My commercial experience includes working for clients/companies all over the world. I would consider myself as a good QA thanks to a solid development background (it’s so beneficial to understand what went wrong when you find a defect!) Team success and customer satisfaction mean so much to myself.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter, good live music, homebrewing ales and lagers, walking in woods, all sorts of DIY, and photography (see gallery.) I also used to be a scout!
