I am a software engineer, weekend contrabassist, and occasional public speaker.
Aside from this, I do some hobby programming as well. My most popular repository is Burn, which is a toolkit to create 8-bit flavored application. In 2014 Burn v0.2 release is announced on reddit and HackerNews, and it spread to every corner of the world almost overnight.
It has been more than 7 years already since I have started to play double bass, but I'm still struggling to learn the fundamentals. Suzuki double bass, Dörfler bow, Belcanto strings and Pop's rosin along with MSP-BASSk01 for pickup are my favorite.
I give talks very occasionally. Most of them are about technical theme like below:
