Hello dearest visitor,

Nice to have you here. My name is Ricky and I'm an open source enthusiast who works as a sound technician. I also write, paint, make music, direct short films and this is where I collect the results of these efforts.

I really enjoy having a privacy respecting minimal effective workflow on my computer. Currently I get that with running the Linux-distro Ubuntu Studio together with the fantastic software it provides. Over at GitLab I keep some LaTeX-templates for writing screenplays, short stories and articles among other things which you are free to use if you wish.

Enjoy! 😁

In Swedish I write short stories dealing with everyday life, like sex and death, as well as an occasional article or debate contribution related to digital privacy.

Most of my texts are written using LaTeX. Occassionally I'll use LibreOffice or Manuskript.
