Freelancer CEO :)

I always try to find a project that brings out the best in me while I try to learn something new or improve on existing knowledge. Above all, I prefer having a creative approach to the problem and finding the best solution. If I fail to find such a project, I simply create the problem on my own and then try to solve it as best as I possibly can, while I simultaneously try to learn either a new technology, programming language or just refine my skills.
