Hacking and Development

The majority of my projects are created with thanks to a random idea, and I throw things together until the idea works. Development is great, you can build anything without any limitations. It's perfect.

Computer Science

When your main hobby revolves around Computer Science, learning about the different areas of Computer Science becomes really fun. In spare time, I try to learn and understand these different areas of Computer Science in order to prepare for my future.

Games

If I'm not doing either of the things above, I'm probably playing a game. I'm a simple guy, and enjoy playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Currently MG2 :).
