Hi, I am Rafal 👋
At the age of 9, I learned the basics of DOS on the oldest IBM you could imagine, which covered my entire desk. 💾
I created my first Website and sold it with tinny profit at the age of 13; since then - you could say that I've had entrepreneur mindset and I knew one day I will set up my own business.
In my late teens, I began taking computers apart and rebuilding or repairing them for others. Let's say my dad wasn't happy about that 😬.
My tech foundation was DOS, Windows 311, Windows 95 or 97, Adobe Dreamweaver, HTML, CSS, and of course, I am old enough to remember a dial-up internet. 🚦
How I started...
My voluntary work at Surrey Police last just over 13 months, and I worked at least two half-days per week. During this period, I was responsible for the Vulnerable Vehicle Scheme operation across Surrey, UK. The VSS (Vulnerable Vehicle Scheme) was created to remind motorists to keep their cars secure and not have valuable items on display.
My main goal was to convert data from paper slips - which have had the registration number of the vehicle, including a description of some high-value items on display, such as handbags, iPads, Phones or even money, into digital formats such as Excel or Word document.
I've been a causal cyclist for most part. I brought my Boardman MTX 8.6 BLACK Hybrid back in 2018, primarily to commute from my house to my office. But I got hooked. As some people say, cycling its a slippery slope.
In 2020, I did some fantastic rides in the summer with a few of my friends, and I loved it. This led to my first road bike - Orro Venturi STC 8020 R400.
