Phew, that'll do for now.
(Ich spreche auch Deutsch, aber Englisch geht viel besser.)
Other than that, working at the intersection of technology and music, my two main passions.
Making music, and occasionally teaching others how to do it.
Occasionally working out to stay in shape (need to get back on the regular workout wagon).
Exploring the city and the many cultural and culinary experiences it has to offer.
Getting back into the habit of traveling, now that I got settled in here in Berlin.
... explaining things.
... making groanworthy puns.
... having profoundly deep and/or silly conversations with like-minded people.
Other than that, you tell me!
I don't restrict myself by genre, there is just so much great music out there! I'm a big fan of all kinds of electronic music: mostly drum & bass, a bit of ambient, IDM, some sub-genres of techno, etc. A few more popular favorites include: Moderat, Woodkid, Fever Ray, Massive Attack, Lana Del Rey, Nine Inch Nails, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Björk, Radiohead, ... I could go on, but you get the idea.
Typical nerdy books like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Lord Of The Rings, cyberpunk novels like Snow Crash and Neuromancer. Also a few obscure Hungarian fantasy novels, but that's unlikely to win me any points here.
21 Grams, Aliens, Pulp Fiction, Mulholland Drive, Trainspotting, Fight Club, ...
I'm on a hiatus nowadays, so most of these are ancient. Broad City, Six Feet Under, Dexter, Californication, Weeds, Skins.
Current favorites are Kyle Kinane, Marc Maron, Louis C.K., George Carlin, Tim Minchin, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt, etc.
Mexican, Thai, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, etc. I can easily get by without eating meat for days, but can also appreciate a good burger. In other words, I don't mind if you don't eat meat as long as you don't mind that I occasionally do.

... current and future projects.
... where to travel next.
... your typical self-reflective, soul-searching type of things.
