My hobbies and interests

Summary: I love Star Wars and Star Trek

In addition to software development and particle physics, I'm also a rather typical fan of a whole bunch of other geeky things!

Star Wars

Star Wars... ah, where to start..

Star Wars means such a great deal to me. Indeed, it is very rare for me to have a conversation without mentioning Star Wars. I own over a dozen Star Wars t-shirts and walking into my room, it's quite hard to not notice the walls covered in posters of the Millenium Falcon, Darth Vader and more. In addition, I own plenty of other Star Wars memorabilia including a Darth Vader mask and my very own lightsaber.

Star Wars isn't just my favourite movie of all time. The very idea of hope embedded in it inspires me. It inspires me to persevere in times of difficulty.

Also, lightsabers are cool!

For the record, here is how I would rank the movies:

  1. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
  2. Episode IV: A New Hope
  3. Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
  4. Rogue One
  5. Episode VII: The Force Awakens
  6. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  7. Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  8. Episode I: The Phantom Menace

May the Force be with you!

Star Trek

I started watching Star Trek when I was about 15 years old. I was quickly charmed by the ideology behind every episode. There is a moral in each and every one of those episodes. This is all disguised in this very cool facade of phasers, warp drives and Vulcans!

Much like Star Wars, I own quite a few posters and other items of memorabilia from the Star Trek franchise. And, again, for the record TOS > TNG but Picard > Kirk.

Live Long and Prosper

World of Warcraft

I play plenty of video games in my spare time, and I mostly play World of Warcraft. At the moment I main a Blood Elf Demon Hunter.

In the past, during Warlords of Draenor, I've mained a Horde Pandaren Hunter. I also enjoy leveling alts every now and then. I play on the server Chamber of Aspects on EU. Don't be shy, let me know if you want to join me sometime. :)

Lok'Tar Ogar

Lord of the Rings

In addition to Star Wars and Star Trek, I am also a big fan of Lord of the Rings. I probably saw LotR before Star Wars, so it will always mean something special to me. I own this plaque and have it hung up next to my room door:

Heroes of the Storm

One of my favourite pastimes is playing Heroes of the Storm casually where I am always joined by my cousin. I mainly play Illidan.

Again, don't be shy, if you'd like to join us some time, just let me know. :)


I recall recieving Diablo II for my 9th birthday. I absolutely loved it! And I've been a fan of the series ever since. At the moment, I play Diablo III, mainly during the season, with two of my best friends. I enjoy playing most of the classes; the Demon Hunter in particular.

Harry Potter

While it's no Star Wars, I still often enjoy and appreciate the Harry Potter franchise.
