Fabian E.


I am at a point in my life where I want to step out of the known and expand my horizons again. I intend to leverage my almost 10y of project and engineering experience in an environment where I can have an impact and make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the quality of peoples lifes. I believe in robust (antifragile) and decentralized structures that benefit people, not systems. I work hard, I dont shy away from challenges, I want to learn as much as I can, have an interest in sustainable food production and sustainable solutions in general (power generation, human powered transport etc.).
