I fell in love with Commodore 64 as a kid age 4-5. Later on I would continue onto the Amiga 500.
I already did some pixel pushing on these platforms, and my love for design and graphcis was born on Commodore machines.
I started doing web design already back in 96-97 before CSS existed, and I've keenly followed every tech advance as the web, and the human interaction with it, has evolved.
I've skied since early childhood and snowboarded since mid teens. Gliding down big mountains is a passion of mine.
Rock music has been a large passion of mine since my teens, and I've explored a myriad of subgenres of rock (Krautrock, Post-punk, Psychedelic and Stoner Rock are some of the favourites).
A long time ago I was also in a hardcore band, that got disbanded after our rehearsal studio and drums went up in a huge house fire. How metal isn't that?
I sometimes minimalistically film bands and acts live from a spot in the audience; One camera, one wide lens and one microphone — combine this recipe and you can make the video intimate, like the viewer would be at the concert with the artist right in front.
My passion for snowboarding eventually lead me into hiking, and the hiking eventually lead me into mountaineering, which further lead me into rock climbing.
As with snowboarding, the big mountains are the environment I most rather climb and move around in.
About 20 years ago, I bought my first analog camera, and many digital cameras have followed later. Being experienced in photography & cinematography comes in handy in the design work as well.
The best camera is the one that you always carry, so I mainly shoot with my phone nowadays — although I prefer shooting with a serious DSLR whenever I have brought one along.
I'm a mountain biker since 20+ years, an exercise runner since 10 years, and a trail runner since a few years.
