Hobbies and interests

Since a very young age technology has been an integral part of my life. A personal interest has ensured that I keep up to date with the latest developments and to further my knowledge continually.

I have a huge interest in broadcasting, which has lead to involvement with the CasparCG opensource live graphics system. My other interests include music, travelling and languages. At present I am studying Swedish and Russian and have basic knowledge of French, German and Croatian.

In my free time, aside from designing and developing, I will most likely be found meeting with people, planning my next adventure with the couchsurfing project, building up my Lego collection or relaxing to music.
