Developer
Lovin' all them stacks

I built my first website when I was around 13. Since then I've been constantly dabbling with code. In 2019, I got my Bachelor's degree in Technical Computer Science (Technische Informatik) at HAW Hamburg and I've been working as a software developer since then (last companies I worked for: Mesaic, Ubilabs, Elbstack). Together with a friend, I started my own software company bitbetter in 2022. We do a lot of software development, mostly with technologies like React, Laravel, Inertia, Redux, Next.js, Astro, Express and others.

Writing and talking about technology

Before I became a software developer, I worked as a tech writer for many years. What started as a nerdy hobby when I was a teenager turned into a proper career: I've written well over 1500 pieces on technology topics (for outlets like t3n, Golem.de, Spiegel Online or fluter) and got a proper job training as an editor (Volontariat). I've visited trade shows and press conferences all over the world and spent a year living and working in Silicon Valley as a correspondent for t3n Magazin. Sometimes I still write as a freelancer for various publications. In 2022 I also started teaching fullstack web development at Hamburg Coding School.

Maker
Building stuff and helping others build

I like building – both nerdy, internet-of-things stuff but also non-technical and simple things from wood and metal, like furniture. Since this is more fun if you don't do it alone, I'm spending most of my free time as the president of Welcome Werkstatt e. V. – a club for likeminded people, who together maintain an open workshop and makerspace in Hamburg Barmbek. I also try to combine this with my day job and create, maintain and consult on software and infrastructure topics like Nextcloud, Matrix/Synapse, GitLab and Kirby CMS for our own makerspace and affiliated partners like Fab City Hamburg e.
