Hi, the Apache Groovy people!

I'm excited to join the team! Big thanks to PMC for this opportunity.

I wrote my first Groovy code 3.5 years ago :) Was tired of the POJO
boilerplate :D
Most of the time I was doing some crazy Groovy things just because I wanted
to learn how Groovy compiler works under the hood. It was fun and easy,
thanks to a great compile time meta-programming model (IMO one of the best
across JVM languages)
But eventually, such things has started to appear as libraries, available
for everyone. And here we are - some of them are merged to groovy-core and
more to come :)

As a committer I hope to continue and even increase my effort on the macro
system and few other parts of the language, but with all the power (and
responsibility :) ) of it.

Hopefully, Groovy people will pay more attention on the macro system as
well, i.e. by asking your questions here:

I'm looking forward to being  an active committer!
