About Me


I'm a (freelance) Software Developer and a Systems Engineer with 3 years of professional experience and 8+ years of programming experience. My main focus is in Embedded Linux, but I also deal with bare-metal C applications and DevOps.

I'm available at for business inquiries and on Mastodon for all else. Currently working at BTL Medical Technologies a.s..

My main skills include GNU/Linux knowledge, C and Python languages and the Yocto build system.
