INTERVIEW

What does Topcoder mean to you?

Topcoder is the demanding and rewarding place where I can keep growing as a designer and make new friends.


What is your greatest career accomplishment to date?

My greatest career accomplishment is attending Topcoder Open 2014.


What are you hobbies besides Topcoder?

My interests are diverse. Among my hobbies I can count working on my personal 3D projects, reading, swimming and travelling abroad.


What is your best tip for a new Topcoder member just starting out?

If programming or designing is your passion, focus on working on different types of contests to see which one you like the most. Then keep working. Sometimes you may win, other times you’ll lose, but every time you’ll learn and grow a little more.


Tell us your Topcoder story.

I have been participating in Topcoder Design competitions for 5 years. I heard about it from a developer I’ve met to discuss a project. While I was just a beginner at that time, I learned a lot on Studio. I had the chance to work on a variety of projects from logo and mobile designs to 3D and After Effects projects. I am proud that I attended Topcoder Open in 2012 and 2014. I was also a member of the month on March 2013.
