About Me

I was born in the German Democratic Rebublic. After the German reunification I started exploring the computer world with my first C64.
Gaming became fast very boring and I started teaching myself in BASIC and later Assambler.
With my first C128 I discovered the Internet ... a long journey began ...

I studied Software Technology and worked for 7 years as project manager for Volkswagen and Siemens.
In 2009 I decided to start all over and came to Canada.
At the moment I have a break from the busy IT buisness till I get my permanent status.
Keeping my brain busy with private projects.

I'm political active for the Pirate Party of Canada and still connected to CCC in Germany.

I joined the ENTS because:

  • increasing my knowlege in Linux
  • learn more about Arduino Programming
  • find new ideas for projects
  • share my knowlege / experience with everybody who is listening
