I’m a software engineer currently working at Digital Control. I build PHP-based web applications for agencies in the field of online marketing.
Originally I'm from Frankfurt/Main, but after several relocations Düsseldorf became my chosen home.
After secondary school, I did a couple of trainings and continuing educations:
IT Assistant without graduation
Basic training in the commercial field
IT Specialist in the field of development
Zend Certified Engineer PHP5
After my vocational training as an IT Specialist, I worked at add2 as a software developer. That's where I got into contact with online marketing and advertisement. I left the company after nearly 4 years to master new challenges.
At Pixum I found nice colleagues and my passion for the backend development. Sadly I quit pretty soon for personal reasons.
Since that I'm working for DIGITAL CONTROL, an agency specialized in software for marketing agencies.
Since April 2011 I'm in the DRK-Wasserwacht, the water rescue unit of the German Red Cross. There I'm working as a sailor and lifeguard. Also I'm the content manager of our website and social media channels.
When not coding or saving lives, I spend some of my freetime with:
Camping and hiking
