Like a Kid in a Candy Store

Ever curious and eager to learn, I am fond of discovering a bit on every byte. Technology and entrepreneurship enthrall me, and so does good food and music.

The entrepreneurial streak in me has led me to co-found hungr.in I am always happy to exchange ideas and engage in interesting conversations over tea or coffee.
