I'm a software engineer living in Munich, Germany. I enjoy playing guitar, lifting weights, and programming computers.

I like to improve people's lives by solving problems. Sometimes that involves technology.

In my career I have built

  • petabyte-scale data processing systems for an email analytics product
  • software to orchestrate containers and stateful distributed systems, used by Fortune 500 companies
  • end-to-end deployment and telemetry systems for self-driving cars

Some of my long-running interests are

  • distributed systems
  • databases
  • functional programming
  • building sustainable online businesses
  • game development

I write most of my software in Clojure and Rust.

As of January 2021 I am:

  • Cycling 100km every week, lifting weights 3x a week and eating well to stay healthy
  • Building software with Rust at work and on personal projects
  • Reading Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder
  • Writing essays like the ones you see above
  • Building out an idea for a sustainable business
  • Improving my German
  • Listening to a lot of Tim Hecker, Spiritbox, and Tigran Hamasyan
