What I read

I spend time browsing reddit on topics of science, tech and funny cats. I love Engadget, Wired, TechCrunch, Electrek and similar blogs. I read comic books, graphic novels and popular science books the most, but the occasional novel is also a pleasure.

Ideal team

I'm comfortable working with one person or with dozens. I've usually been a part of teams of 5 to 20 people.
