Projects

Everybody loves robots! Except maybe Sarah Connor. She seemed pretty terrified back in 1984. Here are a few helping you with some every day life essentials such as filling in those sudokus and solving your Rubik's Cube. Who cares about Skynet becoming self-aware and taking over the world, when you can have Artificial Intelligence playing Tetris instead! And while my robots are plotting world domination, I use my free time to learn new skills - and dancing.

AI playing 2048

Dumb robot, only capable of following a line. But pretty good at doing so. My first ever - working - robot!

Hiking

I love hiking, I love the mountains. When in 40 years from now I'm sitting by thefireplace, I want to tell my hypothetical grandchildren about my experiences, not about the dreams I had. After I hiked the West Highland Way over a decade ago, I did some minor trips in the Alps. It wasn't until 2018 though that I went on a bigger hiking adventure. And what an adventure it was.

Lindy Hop

October 2016 I took my first dance class, taking a leap into the unknown. Little did I know it would soon turn my life upside down as I started going to social dances whenever I could. And when I couldn't, I spent countless hours watching videos getting inspired. Follow the link below to submerge yourself into the world of swing.
