Intro

What I am all about.

From childhood, I have been fascinated by the way you can use electronics to create all manner of things, such as interesting toys like a light organ that flashes in time with music. Electronics can help you to produce wonderful devices to make our everyday lives easier,be it a smoke detector or a system with automatic face recognition for unlocking doors. Curiosity and a thirst for knowledge prompted me to engage more deeply with this subject matter.

Consequently, I trained as an industrial electronics technician, specialising in instrumentation engineering, and subsequently completed a degree in Technical Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences Wedel, focusing on embedded systems. This term refers to computers that are integrated in a technical context and autonomously perform tasks such as monitoring, controlling or signal processing for other devices.

In 2008, I started working as a consultant for various software development projects in Germany and the UK. I was able to gain valuable sector-specific experience in the automotive industry and in security systems. Since 2015 I am a freelancer and now offer various products and services in the field of embedded systems, such as software development, communication stacks for field devices, as well as independent testing for quality assessment purposes.

In my free time I like to travel around the world. This includes trekking trips far from any civilization as well as backpacking. In every country, you can learn something from the different people and cultures you encounter. Codes of conduct vary from one region to the next. Travelling helps me to expand my horizon, remain open-minded and appreciate the simple things. And sometimes the things I experience give me the best innovative ideas for my work.
