Robotics aside, I am a beer enthusiast. When an opportunity to combine these two passions emerged, I poured my heart into it - resulting in an automatic microbrewery built in the summer of 2017.

Outside the technical sphere I am an avid blues fan, playing whenever an unsuspecting piano can be found. A dog person who will tolerate the odd cat, massive Sci-Fi geek, and always happy to enjoy good tea.
