Michael Gubik

Hi, I'm Michael, nomadic fullstack web developer with a passion for great user experience.

My background is broad, ranging from psychology (and UX design) to mathematics and computer science. Previously I mostly worked on native iOS projects in Swift. Nowadays I'm working on web apps (full stack).

When I'm not on the computer I like strength training, running, freediving, meditation, breath work, and many other activities. Recently dabbled in BJJ, currently into surfing.
