I love writing. That is, articles, apps and books. Also, I am a confessing mobile computing addict. And you can frequently watch me speaking at conferences and meetups. Being a child of the 70s my first encounter with programming was in the era of home computers. Those tiny machines (mine was a Laser 210) were usually fed with BASIC, which was the first programming language I learned. Later came C, Perl and a few more. During the 90s I wrote a bunch of programs for the Atari ST series. The first decade of my professional career was (inevitably) Java. Today it’s mostly Kotlin, C#, Dart and Swift.
I am a Freelance Android Engineer working in Berlin for over six years. I enjoy working on social impactful projects and always open for collaboration. During my freetime, I am a yoga and meditation enthusiast, a sustainability advocate and a developer activist.

I'm a data-focussed Cloud Architect for DoiT International out of Hamburg, Germany. I spent a few years in the San Francisco Bay Area for school and work where I got my head stuck in the big data and tech world. Since then, I doubled down on the cloud and spent the last four years building the GCP business for a large marketing technology agency from scratch. When I'm not stuck in the cloud, I'm probably on my yoga mat or in the kitchen cooking up some plant-based treats 🥦
