About Me

Programming Minecraft mods and plugins at an age of 14, I slid into the world of programming.

While studying computer science at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, I began to work as a full-stack web-developer at PCSG. This job brought me a lot of field experience that complements the theoretical knowledge of my bachelor's studies. Before receiving my bachelor's degree, I was already a full-fledged web developer.

By now I'm studying for my master's degree in computer science at FernUniversität in Hagen and still work for PCSG. But besides plain programming I also conceptualize, plan and manage large projects for customers.
