about me:

Currently focused on Bitcoin / Lightning related projects. I have a background in systems and networking.

I wore many hats including: SysAdmin/DevOps, IT Architecture, OpSec, backend and frontend dev, clusters and networking and few other IT fields of interest.

On the programming side I have many years of experience with Python/Golang and feel comfortable with C-like languages. Currently getting into Rust.

I also have a modest interest in ML and Deep Learning (CNNs, RNNs and GANs ) within ethical boundaries. For curiosity I finished the Udacity Deep Learning Nanodegree.
