About me

Who am I

My name is Nilaus and I am creating YouTube and Twitch gaming videos as a hobby.

I am a 38 year old engineer with a passion for optimisation and logistics. I live in Denmark (Copenhagen) and I have 2 kids (girl 8 and boy 6).

My passion for optimisation and logistics is spilling into the games I play. The games I enjoy have a lot of depth and replayability and a long learning curve.

The gaming hobby fills an important place in my life. Not only is it relaxing and rewarding, but it allows me to spend "idle processor power" on thinking about optimisations and ideas in the games. If I do not have this I find that I think about work all the time and that leads to stress and a state of constantly being mentally at work.

Interests

Continuous improvement

I am always curious to learn something new and apply it in my life. I spend my daily commute listening to podcasts and audiobooks to learn new and interesting things.

Main topics are within Business, Management, Development and Psychology.

I always strive for continual improvement and although things can be "good enough" today, they will need to be improved tomorrow.
