Hey, I'm Martin. I'm a founder, product person, occasional consultant, and ex-software engineer. I love dogs, bright colors, novelty, and people who make me think. Does this read like a bad Tinder bio?

Stuff I'm curious about:

  • The Mind. Creativity, productivity, self-improvement, metacognition, mental health. It's a love-hate relationship for me.
  • Science x Tech x Humanity x Future. The cool and important. Space, climate, energy, automation. And so much more.
  • Business. Products people love. Great UX. Teamwork. Visionariness. It's a word, right?

This site is where I get the thoughts out of my head.

What are you into? Let me know on Twitter and LinkedIn.
