Hi, I’m Michael.

From 2013 to 2020, I worked with various startups to deliver their mission. This was a great time to learn what/where I don't belong to. I realized I didn't want to go down that route - the route of marketing shit to people by leveraging their fears and shortcomings.

Before that, I studied mathematics and social sciences to have a (social) impact on the world. Nowadays I enjoy working in the Free and Open Source Software World.

I love to reduce complexity and keep stuff simple and stupid. This whole page is built with Zola (Rust) and needs 30ms to build. No JavaScript, no tracking, no privacy-invasive shit. Hosted on Gitlab (until Codeberg CI is launched). I use Linux, no desktop environment and some simple tools like i3, Vim, Tmux etc., because this stuff just works, is open source and ridiculously fast.

For a while, I was involved in the React / JavaScript / Web Development community, nowadays I'm more into low-level, more general computing stuff like Rust.

Besides all the techy stuff, I have been volunteering in my local community for over 15 years, mainly in the sports sector. I also hosted some 100 workshops, although socializing is not my greatest gift. I do what I can to make the world a better place.

My dream is to own a small company, in which we all work for 20-30 hours per week, while we also find some time to live a fulfilling life.
