Personal website:


“A bad system is a cranky system, but the absolute worst system is a system (however good) that is always changing." Therefore, new procedures, things and approaches need to be introduced judiciously, unhurriedly, and conceptually, so that no aspects are underestimated and the thing in question does not need to be constantly modified and corrected.”

Family, hiking, detective films/books and escape games
