My Hobbies


More than just a sport activity, a new way of life. I started cycling in 2014, it was love at the first ride. Today most of my daily transport I choose to do by bike. I'm often cycling around near by cities and exploring new places, it's always an adventure! You can follow me on Strava.

Rubik's Cube

Nice to exercise the brain, relax or entertain. There are lots of different kinds of cubes today and it's another world I'm deep inside. You can see my profile on the World Cube Association


I really enjoy learning new things and when it comes to music you always have a lot to learn. I started with a harmonica, the instrument which I'm always carrying in my bag. Keyboard/Piano was my second instrument. During my lunch time at highschool I used to play the school's piano and that's my favorite instrument of all. Today I can play the harmonica, the keyboard, the piano and the violin.


Cheers! Prost! Skål! Saúde!

I enjoy drinking different types of beers. Beer License is all among my Open Source codes. Did I make something useful to you? Pay me a beer!

BTW, my favorite one is the IPA!

Other cool stuff

I often have some creative ideas that I love doing myself. This picture is from my chalkboard wall, I made the ink using white glue and spent a day painting it!
