About Me

I'm a result-focused professional with 12+ years in high-tech industry with expertise in machine learning and data analysis applying to finance, real estate, and online products. More than 5 years I was working in management of creating and implementing the digital products.

Since 2014 I've been researching and creating algorithmic trading strategies on cryptocurrency and stock markets. Managing own portfolio consisting of stocks, bonds, ETFs, commodities depending on market regime and situation. I began to carry out research as a self-started researcher. Then I joined the research team of independent developers. Also, I took part in a private cryptocurrency fund as a trading strategy developer.

Sometimes I provide consulting services for clients with interesting ideas. Some of my works you can find on github, project and article sections on this website, or on my Medium's blog.
