Software engineer, musician, mathematician, cryptographer, traveler, vegan cook, German enthusiast, cyclist, etc.

I've written C/C++ for years, but I've also used several languages in the past (QBASIC, VB.NET, ASP.NET, HTML, MSSQL, MySQL, C#, Java, even some Lisp and Prolog), and these days I also use Fortran and Matlab.

After growing up on Windows, I started using GNU/Linux around 2009 and made the switch for home computing in 2012. I haven't looked back. In fact, I broke my Windows drive in the process of switching and I've never even bothered to try to fix it. I use Ubuntu, but I'm not convinced that it is the best. Similarly, while I greatly depend on vim for many tasks, I have no reason to believe it is better than any other text editor.

My solo music (The Nowhere Man) can be found here, my best collaborative work (Missing Values) can be heard here, and my music reviews/criticism can be found here.
