I got into all things computers 8 years ago via rom hacking GBA games. My first program was written in the scripting language used in the Pokemon games. I learned C# to develop my own tools, which came in handy when using Java in school, two internships and now university.

I study applied cognitive sciences here in Germany, and make my money developing internal tools for a local software shop.

My current focus is experimenting with new approaches to well-known tools, such as code editing, version control and file management. These are only prototypes and meandering, unpublished essays about my though processes.
