I wanted to become a VJ. I would call myself "VJ wannabe". But I didn't find a suitable software to use for what i had in mind. So together with a few friends i started work on vvvv - a multipurpose toolkit in 2001.
Soon, building vvvv became more interesting to me than building something with vvvv, so I never became a VJ. And even after all those years I find most pleasure in improving vvvv and helping others using it to its full potential.
Not often enough I do my own stuff.
