Personal Profile:

I found my job very interesting and exciting. However, my family is essential for me, and I have managed to find a balance between my professional and my private life. I spend most of my free time with my wife and two children.

I found passion for photography, mainly street and landscape photogaphy. I enjoy exploring world and looking at life from different perspectine. In my proffesion I learned to value every day. See his work.

In addition I love sport. Since childhood I have been doing a variety of sports (athletics, karate) as it helps me to keep my body fit and my mind focused. Also I have passion in running. It givese me sence of freedom and helps me to build up harmony between body and mind. I believed that sport is as surgery: "Must remain focuse and persistent to acheive the goal".
