About The Author

I suppose the easiest way to sum me up would be to say that I am a creative developer.

I find a lot of joy brainstorming, designing, planning and developing new creative ideas. Whether it be as a mechatronics engineer in the fields of medical engineering and robotics or as a spare-time web designer and coder.

And not to forget: I am a proud VW minibus owner!


Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

About The Site

82/80 (pron. Eighty-Two Eighty) is, as stated above, my little online playground. A lovely, handcrafted piece of bits, bytes and pixels. On one side it serves as a landing page for clients and friends, on the other as a gateway to other projects I maintain or support.

No wait! That’s only camouflage. Actually it empowers me to take over the world!


Thanks for looking. Would love to hear from you.
