Why did you decide to start working in Fintech / RegTech / startups?  

Nowadays as a technologist Fintech is the industry to work in. There is a big need for advanced and modern solutions which makes my everyday work both interesting and challenging at the same time.

What’s been the toughest challenge in working at Trunomi or tech start ups in general? 

A known problem with tech startups is the limited number of human resources which leads to dealing with tasks that you normally wouldn’t. However it turned out to be a positive experience for me and I’ve learned some useful new skills.

What’s your favourite part about Trunomi’s technology?

We use modern technologies that require us to keep up to date with trends and new tools that make our lives easier. I also gave a talk to the London javascript community:

Tell us one thing about you that surprises people? 

I have been to 37 countries around the globe.

What are your ambitions for the future? 

I want to start my own tech solution or consultancy firm.

Finally, where can we find you on the weekend?

If not in a plane traveling somewhere then probably at home resting and planning the next trip.
