About me

I’m Maksim Grinman. I love my family and friends. Secondly, I am a Software Developer at Pefin and loving it. Before working on software, I was a Social Worker, working with home-bound seniors and with Veterans.

I love to learn and my main topics of interest are programming, chess, and martial arts.

I have a 2100 USCF rating in chess. I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, having studied with Sensei Lou D’Agostino and when I was younger with his teacher Grand Master Kee Young Choi. I have also studied Tai Chi for some time with Grand Master William C. C. Chen.
