About me

Due to my apprenticeship with an emphasis on design, 18+ years of professional experience working as employee or self-employed and the study of media computer science at the university of applied sciences RheinMain I can build the bridge between design and technology, conception and realization and can contribute profound professional know-how to the creation of complex web-based applications.

Basically, I am interested in everything which can be sculptured by bits and happens „under the hood“ of web applications. I am also totally into Usergroups-you'll meet meet regularly at the Softwerkskammer, the PHP- and Agile usergroups and many more events in the Rhein-Main area.
