What is it I do?

I'm playing around with software since I was 8, and was lucky enough to make this hobby my work.

I was founder of two companies, and worked with some german and international companies as Software Developer and Manager, most notably Microsoft, AutoScout24 and 1&1.


Who am I

I'm a dreamer, who loves to dive into a chaotic, complex environment finding the best way to optimize the system. I'm a coach, helping people to develop themselves, and work in a group. I'm a manager, who is striving to create teams that do not require his management. I'm a developer, who loves to write code and make the world a little easier. I'm a dreamer, hoping to improve the world.

Also I'm into sport, married with children and love my life.


Where I've been, where I am

Companies & Projects


I'm a regular speaker on conferences in Germany, mostly around the topics organizational development, agile and teambuilding (i.e. in 2017 on the ScrumDay) and successful DevOps and agile implementations using bottom-up change processes (i.e. in 2017 DevOpsCon and XP-Days). I published the article “Reinvent your workplace” in the iX in 2016 with a collegue at 1&1 following a talk on the continuous lifecycle conference around how to change a department in both technical and organizational dimension.
