About Me

I'm a husband, proud daddy and software engineer, living in Cologne Germany. I'm passionate about all things web & computer science.

With more than 10+ years of experience in different roles from developer to team lead and architect, I've worked in agile projects of various sizes. My focus is on clean and maintainable architecture, but I have also a deep understanding of how to work effectively with complex legacy systems that are indispensable for the business processes they support.

Sometimes I do tech talks on random subjects, most likely at cologne.rb meetups. You can talk with me about: startups, business & strategy, computer science, refactoring, OOP, fancy programming languages, guitar music, concerts and festivals. \m/

Depending on project scope, I might be available for freelancing.
