My shamelessly self-referential page about me and myself

I am yet another random nerd on the internet. I am a computer nerd, a music nerd, a fermentation nerd and a beer nerd. I have an unhealthy tendency to dive down too many rabbit holes.

Despite my original background being on biochemistry and bioinformatics, I am currently employed as a data engineer/backend developer.

I am a free/libre and open source advocate and a DIY obsessive. I highly value technological sovereignty and personal privacy.

I am a fan of music in general and of weird heavy shit in particular.

I feel the most comfortable within *nix systems and find functional programming the most enjoyable.

Here’s a list of random trivial preferences of mine.
