About me

Software is my passion

When I was five years old my interest in computers and software was born. I wrote my first programms on a Comodore C64 and continued learning new programming languages and technologies. After finishing school I decided to study at Georg Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg. Over a time of five years I earned a German Diploma as well as a Master of Science degree in Computer Science.

During my self employed time, internships, student jobs and especially while working for Elektrobit Automotive I had several opportunities to gain experience in working with customers, doing presentations and managing projects. Since I like working in teams I did specifications in collaboration with major OEMs, ISO/IEC and other committees, did internal and external consulting and oversaw small projects from a technical point of view.

Although my knowledge is still very diversified I specialized in networks, software architecture and development methodology. At the moment I’m on a sabbatical working for WEC international UK as a volunteer in the IT department, Radio and Music.

Music and audio engineering

Guitars, Keyboards, Accordeons, Flutes, Percussion, … – there are plenty of instruments filling up my all too small flat – the number is growing. My main genres are Pop, Rock, Jazz and Funk, especially in christian setups.

Playing music is great fun, but I also enjoy the opposite side of the stage. This means sitting behind a mixing desk, creating a smooth and pleasant sound. I even worked in lighting, video and multimedia teams for small services as well as big happenings with thousands of visitors and each event was a special one.

What’s this site about?

Facebook, Google, Twitter… – we are in a process of centralizing “the internet” to a few major companies.
This blog is my contribution to break out of this vicious circle.

Since most IT people are familiar with the english language I decided to write about my experiences, projects and thoughts in english. If your command of the German language is decent, you might also want to have a look at the non-technical place.

But now have fun browsing through my blog.
