I was born and raised in Los Angeles, but most recently lived in Brooklyn for 7 years. In 2018 and 2019 I did a lot of travel and discovered a real love for Modernist architecture and monuments, especially from former Soviet and Yugoslav states.
The pandemic has forced me to slow down for now but I plan to head back to Eastern Europe and then to Central Asia as soon as its practical.
I’ve been an independent, remote freelancer for 10+ years in IT Systems Engineering / Service Reliability Engineering mostly within the Entertainment sector.
I also sometimes make creative bots on social media, it started in 2015 as an excuse to learn Python and became sort of a hobby.
You can find me on most sites as @vgan:

48 cities visited in 35 different countries for a total of 90164 miles traveled since 2018.
