I have been lucky to have my first computer at age six. It was Atari 65XE, with BASIC programming language built-in. Since then, computers have been my passion, and I have never stopped programming.

I was launching some startups with various levels of success. The usual level of success was a failure. But that was always fun and educational. 10/10. I will do it again.

In my free of screen time, I do adventurous stuff and sometimes play music.

2023 recap

Unfortunately, that’s a bad sign when you start a year review with the word unfortunately, but what can I do?

Two years in Munich

Unbelievable how relative time is. It feels like we have lived here for at least twice as long.

The year 2022

This is my 2022 review. For obvious reasons, this year has a titanium shit shovel as a mascot.

Still punky, still groovy

Duality by Lisa Gerrard & Pieter Bourke

Sometimes you find a gem

Bless You by Lulu Rouge

This not a new album, but I just found it. And if you missed it too, give it a try. It's a great album.
