Hardware Engineer at @Algolux. Computationally curious.

Since I transitioned from working all day on my personal MacBook Pro to receiving a work computer for a new engineering position, I decided to go for the only financially wise thing: selling my beloved 16" MacBook Pro to live off the 2018 iPad Pro I had around for iOS…

The PH1, first iteration for a brand-new phone company at the time named Essential, was a first-of-its-kind. Featuring the first borderless display back in 2017 with his waterdrop notch, titanium sides, and a ceramic back, it was and still is a stunning piece of technology.

For the most part of my life, I have been racing in mountain bike competitions.

Since I’m old enough to take part in the Elites races of my country, I’ve had to endure countless hours of training. During the season, it can easily reach 15 hours a week.
