Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a first generation geek. I grew up with computers as they grew
up around me. I recently found several computers that I owned in a
computer history museum. I was born and raised in Germany and
enjoyed most of my education in Europe. I tend to pick hobbies
around software and electronics although sailing is my biggest
passion. I take pleasure in both kinds of sailing: social sailing
as well as wet sailing on windy days. In general I enjoy silent
sports swimming and biking being part of it. Recently I supported a
good friend doing a 30 day drinking sabbatical. I enjoyed the
productivity gain in leaving the bar scene for a month so much that
I didn’t rejoin. I am still adjusting to the social changes,
getting tired of hearing ‘you are no fun anymore’ and mildly
annoyed by drunk folks. I spent a significant amount of time in
front of computer screens and rarely turn on my big screen (TV) at
home. With the exception of the Olympics and the Soccer World Cup –
I really don’t watch sports. I became a morning person (5:30 am) to
avoid rush hour traffic for my morning commute. With my recent job
change I replaced my half hour car commute with an easy 15 minute
bike ride. I am still getting up early and enjoy everything I get
done in the morning.
I practice (not always successfully) – Mahatma Gandhi - "Live as if
you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live
I treat people the way I want to be treated. I always have the
intention but some days it doesn’t work out.
I give unconditionally but once in while I catch myself expecting
something in return.
”People don’t always remember what you say or even what you do, but
they always remember how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou.
My ultimate measure of my interactions is how I make people feel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time making software for a smaller software company
here in town. During the summer I sail, swim outdoors and use the
bike to get there. The winter is reserved for geeky projects and
cross country skiing.
