I am interested in science, culture, music, history, politics, and coffee. I am currently based in Berlin, but I love to travel and see new places. Professionally, I focus on frontend and backend development, performance optimization and machine learning. I have started programming when I was twelve years old and was fascinated by letting computers do work for me. After school I went to Cologne University and graduated in 2014 with a diploma (Master level) in Mathematics and Informatics. During my thesis in scientific computing I worked with Fraunhofer Institut and Nvidia on parallelization of algebraic multigrid methods for solving very large linear equations.
This is quite an abstract topic, and when I had finished my diploma I decided to focus on more concrete work. I started developing video games at a small startup and at the same recorded my first EP, followed by an album later on and played many tours and festivals all around Germany. After some time I decided to take a position in a small agency as a technical lead in web development. At this company I gathered useful insights that helped me to become freelancer in 2016 and I am very grateful for the support I had there and still have. Right now I am looking for new projects that hold interesting challenges, move me to interesting places and teach me new experience. Let's see what the future holds...
As part of a medium size team I worked on multiple online shops for Otto that were successfully relaunched.
As part of the Dept Agency frontend team I developed multiple online shops for Otto Group.
As experienced full stack developer I took charge of a small team. We developed and maintained several websites and online shops.
During my diploma thesis I had the opportunity to work with a research team at Nvidia HQ in California, supporting them with my algorithmic knowledge and the ability to implement it.
I help modernising internal infrastructure, websites and their connection and integrate novel CRM and marketing tools.
I wrote my diploma thesis at the Fraunhofer SCAI about solving large linear equations on CPUs and GPUs.
With the Good Evil I planned and implemented several video games in both 2D and 3D. We mainly focussed native iOS and Android apps but also developed web applications.
At Ambient Innovation I built responsive websites using Django.
During my time as student I had multiple opportunities to work for the university. I started out as student tutor for Java programming (Informatics), then moved on to Analysis (Mathematics). After this I worked on a web application to collect geographical data.
