Outside Interests

I like being involved in social activities such as playing board games at local meetups. I enjoy art house cinema, a variety of music genres, traveling, art, and culture. I am passionate about technology (machine learning, software development), zero waste, and ecology. I am strongly motivated to become fluent in Norwegian so you are very welcome to speak Norwegian with me.
