About Martin Boehme

Yo. I'm Martin Boehme.

That’s ‘bay-me’ in English, but I’ll also accept the original German. I do many things; here are some of them.

Photography

I started taking photos in 2015, back when I needed a new hobby to take me away from my computer screen. I've since taken more than 10,000 photos on my Sony a6000, and I've no intention of slowing down.

Music

Piano is a longtime hobby of mine, and I recently decided to merge it with my love of chiptunes and synthesizers. Follow along as I figure out what to do with the hundreds of ideas in my voice memos.

Pixel Art

I've been learning the noble art of placing colored squares. I'm still very much an amateur, but it's a fun way of exploring subjects that I can't necessarily photograph. With any luck (and some time, effort, and attention on my part), this will be a step toward making my own game someday.

Language

Language has fascinated me for a long time. I can get by in Spanish and French, and I'm currently getting to know Japanese. I also have some experience teaching English as a second language and am rather fond of linguistics in general. I'll let you know if your lingua-dental fricative would be better expressed as a lingua-alveolar stop; no worries.

The Inforium

Formerly The College Info Geek Podcast, The Inforium is the place to be if you want to hear long-time friend and collaborator Thomas Frank and I engage in slightly too much banter before getting to our points. We ended the show at episode 25, but that's still a 325 episode feed for you to feast your ears on.

Goalbook

Back in 2018, I decided to come up with a new habit-tracking system to reboot my goals. I needed it to be flexible, refreshable, and able to be written in a fancy orange Leuchtturm notebook. Thanks to Thomas' video on how it works, many people now know it as "The Martin System." I didn't name it; I promise.

College Info Geek

I've been working with the previously-mentioned Thomas Frank for a long time, and it all started here. I've written a handful of articles for CIG, and I handle anything involving servers, code, or things that can't be easily categorized. Perhaps more specifically, I built the two most recent versions of the site, and I help make videos from time to time.
