Head of Quality & Solution

Started testing by accident as a student job back in the late 90’s and after about 5 years of trying to run away from it I finally realized that I actually like the work and responsibility of a Tester. Have been able to work in small and larger organizations, from tiny Internet Startups and all the way to Global Enterprises such as Mercury Interactive (back in the day). During my professional journey I’ve been a tester, test manager, qa director, consultant, trainer, speaker and more. I’ve been lucky enough to speak at conferences such as Star East, CAST, QA&Test, and in a number of meetups throughout Europe. Today in PractiTest I manage all the aspects of Quality for the Company, and as Solution Architect I also work with our customers to understand their needs and create a better product. In the last number of years I have been working on giving back to the community with a number of projects such as the State of Testing Report – http://qablog.practitest.com/state-of-testing/ – (running for 4 years now) together with TeaTime with Testers, and my latest project, the OnlieTestConf – http://www.onlinetestconf.com/ – that already ran 2 editions and we are starting to plan the third one for this fall.
