About

Hey everyone, Marco here!

I am building empowering large software projects, projects with LEDs, 3D printing, laser cutting as well as mini software projects.

About me:
Interested in a diverse range of topics - from UX/UI design to software development up to LEDs, traveling, drone photography and more. And always interested in learning more to realize new projects. Used to travel a lot, exploring countries all over the world. And got introduced to character- and life changing communities over the years - especially to hackspaces and Burning Man. Always try to empower people and encourage them to be themselves instead of limiting themselves by terrible social norms.

Help me to continue building awesome projects by becoming a Patreon!

Here is an overview of my most recent projects:

Currently focusing on:

hackspaces.org redesign - A new website to explain what hackspaces are, making them more accessible for new people and improve collaboration between hackspaces.

My other projects:

Contact Cards Holder

NeoPixelPlus - The NeoPixel library plus some extras, for example a testing mode - so you can see how your LEDs would behave directly in the terminal, without any extra hardware.
