Hi there!

About me

Hi there! I am a software developer, musician and a conversationalist. And I love to Make Cool Shitâ„¢

I like to be useful. I subscribe to the idea that information that does not translate into action is not knowledge and I like myself to stay at the edge of my knowledge. Technology, by definition, is the edge of human knowledge. So naturally I am in the tech world trying to solve a handful of meaningful problems.

I am deeply passionate about exploring different ideas, across many disciplines. I read stuff (but not as much as I would like myself to). I love to study psychology and philosophy. And science, of course. I identify as both a rationalist and an empiricist. I am fascinated by investigation of human psyche. I am deep in a pile of philosophical thought and I am always up for a conversation.

When work ends I am musician and an amateur writer and I love to talk to all sorts of people. I have been trying to write both music and a book for sometimes without much success. (Hopefully I can edit this page to change this line soon).

I occasionally write here about tech, philosophy and ideas. Reach out to me on social media if you want to talk about anything, all the links are in the footer.
