Besides programming, I like reading non-fiction books, particularly those related to philosophy, psychology, and other thought-provoking subjects. I'm also an intermediate German speaker and enjoy activities like going to the gym, meeting up with friends, taking walks with my dog, reading and drawing.

I keep up with various movies, television shows, and occasionally indulge in video games, with the majority being sci-fi related. The rest of my free time I spend on AI and game development, as they present a wide array of unique challenges.
