About Me

Hi! I’m Alex. I work as a data engineer currently for DeliveryHero here in Berlin, Germany. I’m in my mid 30s, married, and we’ve got two dogs: Ruger and Pippa.

I’m half East Indian and half Yugoslavian. I call Portland, Oregon home – well I used to. I don’t know if we will ever leave the EU. More on this in a post in the future. Stay tuned. But anyway, I like computers, sci-fi, my dogs, traveling europe with my wife, and Taco Bell, Mountain Dew, and just eating good food.

Why This Blog

I set up this blog to post my thoughts and give back. I’ve learned a lot and wanted to share it with the rising generation of engineers. Some of the posts will be political, personal, about current events, etc., but I will also have many posts that relate to careers, programming, and data engineering.

(If anyone knows how to make it such that their dogs never age and live forever do get in touch, please!)
