I'm Sourfruit
I engineer, snowboard, play polo, develop software, fly planes and sometimes surf.

I've started SaaS startups and worked on systems that have millions of users, save lives, and improve humankind's quality of life. On the other hand, some are just fun and pointless. Usually, these achievements are never connected to the Sourfruit pseudonym.

Currently, I occasionally build random passion projects, attempt to implement AI into everything, rant on Twitter, and enjoy life around the world.
Comparison is a thief of joy.
