Personal Profile

Hi. Let me tell you a little about myself.

profile

My name is Eugene. In the electronic dance music scene, I am known better as Renov8, although I've had other aliases as well.

I've been doing lots of things in life, but the two things I excel the most in are software engineering and electronic music creation.

It all started when I was about 12 and came to the United States from Ukraine and got my first IBM PC 486 as a present from my dad. I immediately became fascinated by what computers can achieve. This gave me a kick-start towards a long haul to becoming a software engineer.

Over the years since, I've enjoyed learning as much as I could about what computers are capable of. I studied various books, websites and manuals. Now, I proudly work as a Senior Software Engineer and enjoy earning my way doing what I've always loved to do.

Please feel free to learn about my experience working as a software engineer by visiting the work experience section.

The music section contains samples of my music for your enjoyment.
