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). Currently I mostly build JavaScript web applications (Frontend & Backend) using tools like React, Redux, Next, Express and others at my employer Elbstack. We are a collectivistic software company, so we are proud to have transparent salaries (no negotiations) and offer unlimited vacation time.

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.

Maker
Building stuff and helping others build

I like building – both electrical, nerdy, internet-of-things stuff but also non-technical and simple things from wood and metal, like furniture. Building things is more fun if you don't do it alone – that's why 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 and maintain software and infrastructure for our own club as well as other places like us.
