About

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.

In the morning, I work as a software engineer. For a while, I was involved in the web development community, nowadays I'm more into low-level, more general computing stuff like Rust.

In the afternoon, I enjoy working on free and open-source software.

I love to reduce complexity and keep stuff simple and stupid, e.g. this page is built with Rust, has no JavaScript, no tracking, no privacy-invasive stuff.

I use Linux, with some simple tools like i3, Vim, Tmux etc., because this stuff just works, is open source and ridiculously fast.

I have a dedicated page for the tools I use.

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, because I love the idea of sharing (knowledge).

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.

To keep up-to-date with my work or my personal stuff, I invite you to subscribe to my blog over RSS.
