I have a background in political science but made the switch to the IT field a couple of years ago, when I decided to make my hobby my work. My main driving force when it comes to software development is the problem solving aspect; to understand and model real life problems and solve them with code.
In my spare time I like to go the gym and I'm also quite passionate about football, both as a fan and as a player. Few things are as satisfying as seeing your team perform above expectations, and that goes for both on the football field as well as with development. I believe that the whole, truly, can be greater than the sum of its parts.
