Fresh air, just in time.


Mind and spirit search the heart of life.
We ask, the world responds.

Exploration

The world is a curious place. I enjoy looking into its details, especially in the neighbourhood of observed anomalies or around non-intuitive relationships. I enjoy, faced with technical challenges, exploring alternatives.
