I was born in Ukraine in 1968. I wrote my first program when I was 12 years old back in high school in Ukraine. It was a programmable calculator based program designed to solve quadratic equations. I have been programming ever since. I took programming classes in high school for four years. I wrote programs in ALGOL and FORTRAN 4 (it was early eighties in Ukraine, mind you). I moved to United States in 1991, and I am proud to now be a citizen of the USA. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in the US from GSU with bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. I got my first paid IT job while still in college. I have been in IT ever since.

I am now Microsoft MVP. I also have the following certifications: MCSD for .NET, MCPD, MCTS, MCAD for .NET, MCDBA, MCP. I have been working exclusively with Microsoft products for 13+ years. I worked with SQL Server, VS.NET and .NET framework for many years. I enjoy what I do and try my best to keep up with rapidly evolving industry.

I have been an architect Tyler Technologies since January 2013, and I really enjoy working there!
