megaphone yelling

This is me, at the moment—

  • Happily working artisanally, designing and building recording studio gear for 51dB audio. It is very rewarding to make unique objects that will last many decades; to work with customers over an extended period; to hear how things I make are used to shape music.
  • More into meeting a few really interesting people than lots of people.
  • My workshop is in a shop & cottage in central Berlin and I live there—with no separation of functions and music playing everywhere. I usually work alone; live together with Carmen.
  • Going around Berlin on my bicycle, running errands.
  • At home I eat plant‐based—definitely makes me healthier. That’s literally a thousand meals a year, so it adds up.
  • Cooking our meals and do the shopping at local markets and small shops. Reduced supermarket purchases to zero.
  • I do three 6km runs per week.
  • reading: Eric Hobsbawn, The Age of Empire.
