I am a software engineer with great passion for what I am doing. Designing and implementing software is a creative process to me, closely related to art and craftsmanship. I love spending my free time travelling around and experiencing something new. I have a passion for rock climbing and try to connect my hobby with my trips. That got me to some of the most scenic places on earth.

In summer 2017 I finished my job contract back in Germany and moved to Sweden. After a short stay on the beautiful island Lidingö I moved to Vasastan in central Stockholm. The first intense weeks of learning Swedish are behind me and I got to know two of the seemingly most important words: fika and lagom. Nowadays I spend my time exploring this buzzing city and the Swedish countryside.

After it has been very quiet around my website in the last years, I finally have time to recreate it from scratch. You can find me working on it in one of the many cozy cafés here in Stockholm.

Tech Talk

I spend quite some time at computer related tasks. Some of my work and researches might also be of interests for others. The topics, I think are worth sharing, will be listed here.

World Insights

I love to travel, meet people with different backgrounds and to experience new cultures. Here is a selection of galleries with impressions from some of my latest trips.

I am going to update the most current galleries from Sweden from time to time and I intend to add new ones from my previous trips. It takes more time than you expect to pick just a few photos from the bulk.
