Hi there! My name is Vadim Brodsky (though officially its Vadims Brodskis, because thats how the Latvian language works). Some of you might know me by my Twitter handle @jamiejakov (why jamiejakov?). I was born in Riga, Latvia and have lived there for 17 years, after which I have come to Sydney, Australia to get a university degree and settle down.

Currently working as a Associate Developer at WiseTech Global. Recently graduated from the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Bachelor of Arts in International Studies course in UTS (University of Technology Sydney). Still webmaster of anime@UTS and AnimeSydney.

Love technology, anime, games, and traveling, so thats what I'm mainly going to blog about. I also swim and playing the trumpet (though I haven't had much time for that lately). Got into photography, so I hope you like my photos. Gaming wise - Overwatch, Hearthstone, Street Fighter, WoW, etc.

Aside from that I know 5 languages (in the order that I learned them):

  • Russian - mother language
  • Latvian - country language, and all the subjects in school were taught in it
  • English - have been learning since I was 3 years old
  • German - learned it in school (around 7 years), haven't had any practice lately
  • Japanese - 8 or so years now, passed JLPT N2

Hope this gave you an idea of who I am and what to expect.

Please enjoy my blog.
