Christian in a short interview

Who is your super hero?

What motivates you in your daily work?
I want to change the way we work. I want IoT in commercial buildings to add something meaningful to our daily business life.

What makes you the coolest Hack MC?
I live on a small island. I make my way to work on a ferry. I have turned the dream of an island life into reality. 😛
