About Me


Shape the world


I'm a software developer and civil activist. I do programming related to linguistics, particularly - information retrieval and lexicography.

I love art. Particularly I am interested in art nouveau, modern visual art and modern Ukrainian academic music.

I'm one of administrators of Ukrainian Wikipedia, member of Wikimedia Ukraine.

I love traveling in Ukraine with my bike and tent. Occasionally I hitchhike by myself and with friends.


People are born to create.
