Thought this needs an update.

I deleted my twitter and been active here for a while.

I'm mostly tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry Pi and electronics. Python programmer by day and sometimes by night too.

I'm into Debian and linux in general, and make videos for @gtalug.

I also like running and cycling.

I'm posting about my side projects but also retoot things I find interesting.

Is it me or the way engines mounted on il-62 is totally weird?

My brother shot and edited a short series about the food neighborhoods in #Toronto called "In The Belly of Hogtown"! It's from a couple of years back now and that scene changes so fast, but it's available online now.

I'm so proud of my bro, y'all.
