Hey, I am Andrey, and it is my personal website. I have created it because I know that world just can't live without knowing everything about me.
Introduction
Slapping keyboard until something good happens.

Previously software developer, now more of a product guy. I am interested in making something people want. Initially getting into Bitcoin as a core developer of Lightning Network Bitcoin Daemon at Lightning Labs I later transitioned working on couple of own products, though was guilty to be more attached to technology, rather than a problem of end users.
Current focus
Currently looking for to be part of new team and product with environment of transparency, openness, healthy disagreement. Taking active role in decision making process regarding future direction of a product and having responsibility ownership in its key parts is utterly important for my sanity. Also I am reading books about biology of the cell, and researching biotech startups.
Current interests
Startups, products, personal growth, tinkering, programming, hacking, engineering, bitcoin, lightning network, open-source, snowboarding, psychology, standup comedy.

My interests regarding future work have recently changed. Go to content I am consuming section.
