Computers are fun, but I'm mostly interested in operating systems, embedded software, security and system design.

I love to challenge myself, and I'm always working on something (usually OSS, but I also do some hardware, check my git).

I'm a minimalist: I try to use only what I need and do the "plumbing" myself wherever I can. I really dislike waste!

I'm also very focused on efficiency and try to optimize all my workflows (from development to cooking).

I love Linux, all my local and remote machines run some flavor of it.

I work best with a terminal: shell automation is simple but powerful and less layers between me and the system makes troubleshooting easier.

Broken electronics don't scare me and I'll always look inside something before throwing it away

I designed some super simple boards and can somewhat solder circuits. Wiring projects is annoying but fun, feels like knitting!

I'm learning about radios and transmitting in general, but I'm still moving my first steps.

I'd really love a lab/workshop to experiment and create, and am slowly working towards that.

I'm a (very bad) musician: I like messing around with electronic instruments and sometimes making my own.

I'm just too shy to really produce anything myself, but I want to grow some courage and express myself eventually!

I built my own MIDI keyboard+sequencer, and while it's still not perfect I'm very proud of my design.

I also love consuming music: it can really change my mood! I listen to a lot of things, from The Beatles to Death Grips, and most things inbetween. Ask me about it! But never pass me the aux :3

I love forests and mountains, the sea is cool but hot and wet, I'll always pick a hike and camping over sunbathing and swimming.

I like exploring new places, be it in my city or while on a walk, I'm not shying away from "adventures"!

Visiting human sceneries is beautiful and acculturating, but nature sights are just breathtaking: no human craft can reach close to the world's complexity.

I love my bike, and try to go everywhere with it. Maybe someday even down hills? (:

I'm fascinated by the macroscopic and the microscopic, and I want to study more about it

I must know how things work, and our universe is a thing (maybe?), so I'm dying inside knowing that we don't know!

I loved physics during high school and again during university, and I want to study more someday. Did you know that separating quarks takes so much energy you end up creating new ones in the process? :) (well kind of!)

I messed a little with IBM quantum computers (well, simulations of), and was blown away by non-binary computing (and also the complexity, wtf does the pauli gate do???)

I'm always trying to learn something new, and I'll never be done.
