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. I love creating web stuff (with TypeScript) and low-level stuff (with Rust).
In the afternoon, I enjoy working on:
- free, simple, fast, open-source software (Linux, i3, Vim etc.)
- free, simple hardware (old thinkpads, pine64 etc.)
- decentralized systems (software and finance/crypto)
Besides all the techy stuff, I have been volunteering in my local community for over 20 years, mainly in the sports sector.
I also host some workshops (~120 so far), because I love the idea of sharing (knowledge).
I am dreaming about building a small company, in which we all work for ~20 hours per week, while we also find some time to live a fulfilling life.
Maybe I can use my interest in tinkering to fulfill this dream while delivering value to the world.
If you have a dream about that too, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
