Also, I don't shy away from DevOps related tasks. I love to host my projects in Docker containers and enjoy being the admin of my own little server. This website and other projects in fact, are running on a small Raspberry Pi on an Ubuntu Server. I might not have a sophisticated deployment pipeline, but some simple cronjobs to pull and deploy the latest changes from the production branch also do the job!
Besides all these technology-related topics, which I am passionate about, I am also quite into sports. In 2022, I cycled from Berlin to the Swiss Alps on my road bike to get more in shape and lose some weight, which I gained during my time at university. I try to average about 10 hours of sports a week, which is a highly ambitious goal for me. If it ain't on Strava, it never happened! I like cycling, the occasional run and standup paddling, as I live close by nature, which makes these activities convenient - no excuses!
My interest in sports stems from my inner drive for self-improvement. As a Christian, I believe I have the responsibility and also the ability to become the best version of myself in order to be an inspiration for others and someone who can make a positive impact on the world. In order to achieve this, I also developed a high interest in psychology and philosophy. Thinking about mechanisms of consciousness and how phenomenology and religious experience shape our lived experience as humans is highly fascinating to me! I want to work on something meaningful and take on responsibility. I want to step into the unknown!
