⚫ Activities outside of 9-to-5

🎶 Music has always been a huge part of my life. Be it concerts, festivals (either attending or organizing), or just connecting with like-minded music nerds.

Here's a small selection of the tracks I play while working →

🎲 I lo-o-ove board games! Strategic, RPG, abstract ones, you name it. Currently playing a Gloomhaven campaign which will probably last for a year a two.
