About Me

hustling tech in der hauptstadt. i write for the firm, fly around and talk to people at conferences, try to spread some ideas

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

signed up in boston in 2010 on a whim, had a great time, hosted some people. fast forward to 2015 and my new flat is awfully empty and boring. it's more fun with some people around


ranting (1 free rant daily), cooking, drinking wine, the german language!, various musical instruments i can't play for shit & tech - i'm starting to lean more in the physical computing / internet of things direction tho I enjoy the odd coding every now and then

Music, Movies, and Books

tasty music! i curate some playlists in the trip hop / downtempo direction, a lot of bonobo, rjd2, and a few spillover producers that may be characterized more as hip hop (dj shadow, cut chemist etc). some jazz (miles davis primarily), some jacques brel. and when you start going along those lines, there's a lot of other stuff that's good too, but that's a little different, and that's tough to summarize

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

isn't it tough to describe things that one does as "amazing"? i have some sense it goes against my jante. the more fun things i've done have tended to be a little more in the spontaneous direction: decided on about 2 weeks notice to pack up my things and move to berlin, then stayed, then one morning got up in my monkey suit to try and hand roses to strangers (which was hard, but fun). done about 15 different jobs while at the same firm (and 6 job titles to boot).
