Borna SafaiAnalyst

From breaking his dad’s computer when he was working during the day (don’t tell him!), Borna has come a long way to help people solve their problems using technology. Asking questions, writing user stories and documenting are just some of the things he does when he’s not reading a book.

From Sweden through Israel to Canada, Borna is still asking himself why he returned to the cold.

Whether it is learning a new framework for building an app or finding just the right hand tool to finish a piece of furniture, he knows the right tool can be the difference between usable and wonderful.

David currently lives in Calgary and steals away to Hawaii whenever possible.
