I like learning about the world around me, and enjoy acquiring a broad range of skills. My professional background is primarily in software development and computer science research. However, that is only one part of my life.

I like to spend time with friends, relax during a sunny afternoon and slip away in a daydream. When I hear a catchy tune, I try to play it on my piano, sometimes succeeding and sometimes not. I watch movies while trying to uncover their subtle underlying meanings.

It doesn’t end there: tinkering with gadgets, being drawn into a book, shooting and editing film to share. I could continue indefinitely, but perhaps the best thing for you to find out what captivates me is by reading this blog. Since most of all, I like to contemplate and communicate my insights to others.
