About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To still be alive when peace finally gets here. Alternatively, to be dead before mankind destroys itself...

ABOUT ME

Working in a start-up in the field of computer vision.
I'm one of those "cool nerds" as I like to call it: on the one hand, I'm pretty much a computer geek. On the other hand, I enjoy meeting and talking with new people, dancing and partying once in a while, and having fun with other people.

PHILOSOPHY

"Never be desperate"
