About Daniel Perez

If I go back in time, I can recall that I have always been a person of ideas. As a child and as a student I was always brimming with questions-- sometimes to the point of annoying my parents and teachers with them. But I was always fascinated with possibilities. “What if…” has always been my favourite mantra. Over time I realised that I had a knack for problem solving. Whenever an idea germinated in my head, I would spend endless hours trying to give life to it. And in this quest for solving problems and inventing solutions, I found technology to be the most resourceful and reliable friend.

It was almost natural for me to opt for building a career in computer science. And now as a qualified Software Engineer, I have a huge appetite for new real-life challenges and designing effective and efficient solutions for them.
