Ilan Vaks

I discovered my love for technology while growing up in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 15, I took on the exciting challenge of building my own PC, which sparked a deep passion within me. From that point forward, I've made it a point to incorporate technology into my everyday life. Keeping up with the ever-evolving trends in the tech world has become a personal curiosity of mine.
