What did you enjoy doing as a kid that has aged with you
1. Making music
I was lucky enough to have piano lessons between the age of 8 and 18. I'm still practicing today, it's the last thing I do before going to bed
2. Drawing and painting
When I was a teenager, I spent countless days trying to learn how to paint decently. I kept doodling, sketching and sometime painting through all these years, for me this is the space where I find mindfulness
I am a computer scientist by training, I did computer graphics on Silicon Graphics systems (does anybody remember them?) but I stopped being a programmer when I embraced the dark side of corporate IT. Today I make some little animation with p5js or python, the field of generative / algorithmic art is an interesting place to try implementing some crazy algorithm in a visually catching way.
