You will find on this blog various articles, mostly related to technologies in various degrees, from technical to philosophical. Additionally, you will also find articles from my nomad trips and adventures.

If you wish to stay up-to-date on the latest posts I publish, checking-in regularly, RSS or subscribing are pretty much the only ways. I might post on Twitter, but in general I am not very active on social media and have limited online presence.


I'm Rafael, a multi disciplinary software engineer from Switzerland. I wander around Europe and Africa as a so called "digital nomad".

For more than 10 years, I have been working professionally as a software engineer across different industries and companies.

Currently I'm building backend services for Craft Docs. In the past I worked at Rockstar North, Wargaming.net, SatoshiLabs, StremBee, Riff and IBM.

You might have seen, heard or used products I worked on, such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games Social Club, World of Tanks, Trezor, NoCoin, and more.

I write code for myself on countless unfinished and unpublished personal projects. When I don't code, I love to take photographs and experience life wherever I currently am.
