My self-summary
(moving to Berlin soon -- January or February -- and visiting a few times before that)

I walk the fine line between a hippie and a yuppie. While I have a comfortable life at home, I'm constantly drawn to travelling the world to see what more it has to offer. I take pride in my work, but realize that there is more to life and that I occasionally need to step outside for a bit and regain my perspective.
What I’m doing with my life
For a living, I work as an independent contractor for all things computery, and preferably complex (because that is more fun). When I'm not working, you might find me biking, rollerblading or learning for my amateur radio licence.

As a hobby, I'm somewhat active in the Demoscene — people meeting to present and critique art done with computers — and occasionally do small errands for the Debian project. Both of these give me lots of opportunity to travel and meet people all over the world.

In the long run, I'd like to grow my work into a company, glass-fronted building and everything.
I’m really good at
I've been told that I'm a good teacher, and I can make up presentations on the spot. I'm not afraid to speak to a large audience either, which also helps.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy science fiction, because it gives me new ideas and concepts. I'm currently reading The Scar by China Miéville, and am a huge admirer of Charles Stross and Neal Stephenson. As for TV, The Big Bang Theory is my guilty pleasure, Doctor Who I follow religiously, and I just caught up on Game of Thrones, having started late.

My musical taste is a mix of pop, alternative and obscure. If you wanted names, I'd say Moloko, Covenant, Archive, Poets of the Fall, the Apparat Organ Quartet and Genesis. Eläkeläiset are awesome too, but best experienced live.
The six things I could never do without
• The Internet, as my circle of friends is spread out all over the world, and it would be difficult to keep in contact otherwise,
• my morning shower, which gives me the necessary time to ponder where I am going with my life and what to do with the day, and
• my TO-DO list, keeping all of the open ends organized and prioritised.
On a typical Friday night I am
either deeply immersed in a fun project, unwinding with a good restaurant dinner or packing my bags for the weekend trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The fastest way to turn my head is to speak with a Welsh accent.
You should message me if
… you want to go grab a coffee, or watch a concert. Lunch would also be nice, if you're in the east of Munich.
