Nice to meet you! I want to start by making a few confessions. Yes, that is my real name. I did not make it up to sound Latin, it is not a nickname or a Pokemon. That baby picture is also me. I know my face is fine. No, I will not change it. Yes, I was always like this.
People often ask these things when we first meet, so I decided to provide a cheat sheet. With that aside, you are probably here to find out more about me, so let's get started.
If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would not know. Unlike some people, I never wanted to do that one thing. Instead, I loved exploring. And so I did. I spent my whole childhood doing that. Maybe that's why I work on things today that did not even exist when I was born.
Despite my curiosity, I have a few broad interests that will probably never change. I like humour, knowledge, philosophy, progress, and systems. Everything I do stems from these values. You can see what I currently deem worthwhile on the Focus page. Currently, I spend most of my time doing software engineering and angel investing. Over the long term, I want my work to reach 100M+ people, remain curious, raise a happy family, and stay fit forever.
You might also wonder what's the purpose of this website. At first, it was a way to claim my little space online. Gradually, it evolved into my digital house. I keep it tidy, work on hobby projects in the garage, and pay my council tax. Like in a normal house, you can get to know its occupants by examining their bookshelves or observing their decorations and pictures on the wall. If you like what you see, why not reach out?
No one knows what will happen tomorrow. However, I hope I will be able to contribute to our future in a positive way. I intend to do that by expanding my circle of competence so I can work on exponentially more interesting projects as I get older. If your values or work match mine, I would be excited to hear from you!
