Doing coding & projects for over 25 years now. Born in Hildesheim, studied Media Systems at Bauhaus-University Weimar and now living in Berlin. After being co-founder of an US based startup in 2005 and even having practiced the dark art of software patents, now turned into a follower of the holy doge. Working part-time as an open-source programmer in the open education area by day and doing passion projects on the side. Like the dogerain.rocks app - where people all over the world make it rain dogecoins on each other and having fun. Or konfettiapp.de - started at the refugeehackathon to connect old and new neighbours to improve their living together with a playfull karma like point sytsem called konfettis.
