About Me

Open Source enthusiast, wood chopper, traveler. Creating things keeps me happy.

When not in front of a Linux operating system, you will probably find me free-riding in the swiss alps, sailing in the Mediterranean, or reading a book with my cat.

My brandnew passion goes for VW buses (syncros) from the 80s.
