About

My name is Quint Guvernator. I live and work in Amsterdam doing hacky shit with browser APIs and networks. Lately, I've been making chipmusic and homebrew for the original 1989 Nintendo Game Boy. My Dutch is garbage, please help me make it less so.

I'm also a member of the eternally cozy Techinc. You can sometimes find me at chaos.amsterdam.

Revspace changed my life. I was an exchange student at Universiteit Leiden from August to December 2015. I spent much of that time at Revspace, and thanks to lots of help by some great participants, I learned a ton about hardware—a field I had never really touched before. I went on to learn a lot more and got involved in US hackerspaces, namely hackrva and my home university's space.

It's nice to be back!
