🪬 Crash Course

As a software developer and aspiring entrepreneur, I'm passionate about building products that solve real problems. I merge my interests to develop innovative ideas for side projects and hackathons.

When I'm not nose-deep in code, you can find me expressing my love for street photography, sketching, watching video essays, drowning in epic sci-fi, or enjoying a dash of horror movies!!


I enjoy brainstorming innovative (or whimsical) ideas that makes life better.

Ever had a random bright idea hit you in the shower? That was the inspiration for this site. This is a man cave for me to pen down my thoughts and share my ideas. Feel free to hmu or just browse around. 🍵

I am obsessed with well-designed stuff. I love products where the aesthetics are seamlessly blended with function, carrying a unique personality. Here is a collection of novel furniture items that captures the essence of a great design.

La Chaise

Charles & Ray Eames, 1948
Inspired by the 'Floating Figure' sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. The lounge chair has long since established itself as an icon of organic design.

Neumann Side Table

Objekte unserer Tage
Practical furniture & art object. The sculptural look of the expressive design object varies depending on the viewing angle and offers space for a wide variety of everyday objects in a very unusual way.

Squiggle No.1 Mirror

Cutonce x Joshua Vides, 2023
A striking and contemporary piece that combines art and functionality. Featuring Vides' signature squiggle design, this mirror adds a bold and playful touch to any space while serving as a functional reflective surface.

Him & Her Chair

Fabio Novembre, 2008
Born directly from the ideas behind the Panton Chair. An evolution of the hermaphroditic original, declined into the harmony of the two sexes. They assume sculpted forms like naked models of seduction but they are not ashamed.

⚙️ Gear

Luke had the Lightsaber, Aragon had the Andúril, and Thor had the Mjolnir. A master can only work with his best tools. As a tech & productivity wizard, these are my secret weapons to help me get things done.

Dell XPS 15

My base of operations. All the daily work and fun stems from this amazing machine. 4k large screen makes coding and watching videos enjoyable. It's touchscreen too!

iPad Air Gen 5

My sketchpad and canvas, which I use to jot down notes and iterate through ideas quickly. It's an excellent productivity device that is both portable and affordable.

Skyloong GK61

My starter experience with mechanical keyboards. Solid thocks at a cheap price. Feels like I type faster here (the 60% format without arrow keys can be annoying)
