I’m an entrepreneur and software developer, with a degree in Law from the University of Cambridge. I’m interested in software development, startups, education, languages, science, international law and some other things. This website serves to introduce you to some of my interests.
I’m very interested in startups. I have been running my own startup Interlinear Books. In it, we have a mission to bring exciting literature to language learners by making novel Interlinear translations. Such translations could be called ‘subtitles for books’, and they include the original literary text in foreign languages supplemented by an English translation below each word or expression. Apart from this, I have also been involved in some other projects, such as a verb conjugator called CoolJugator or an etymology website called Etymologeek.
Outside of these interests, I maintain a big interest in languages. I’m quite intrigued both by the idea and inner workings of language and also modern languages. I’ve been trying to learn the language of every country I have lived for an extended period of time in. My favourite method for improving languages right now is directly related to my startup: literature.
Before starting my current work, I studied Law. I mostly concentrated on International Law and participated in some big International Law moot court competitions (including the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in Washington D.C., the Foreign Direct Investment Moot Court Competition in London, the WTO Law Moot Court Competition in Cluj-Napoca). I am particularly interested in the interaction between law and technology, and my research interests were concentrated on the legal regulation of decentralised currencies.
