Обо мне

A recent convert to all things IT, I started out in banking sales, then worked for a brokerage firm: engaged initially in customer service and later (following promotion) as a mentor for new employees. After six incredible months at Sochi Olympics where I worked for the Organizing Committee I decided to change my career completely - I wanted to learn coding. Now I am a beginner in Python programming interested in Web development, machine learning and computer science in general.
