With the background of a finished Masters in Computer Science, I have foundational knowledge of all important technical concepts. My experience as a web developer has further given me the knowledge about most aspects of modern web development. Working independently and collaboratively is one of my key strengths. My passion lies in the fields of cryptocurrencies and I'm very happy to be using my Solidity skills as smart contract developer.

Apart from being a software engineer, I enjoy lots of different types of sport. In the summer, I try to do most sport outdoor, which includes calisthenics and soccer. During the colder months, with the exception of occasional snowboard trips, I do sports indoor in the gym.

Since the beginning of blockchain time, i.e., the bitcoin genesis block, I followed the chain. No, I'm kidding, but I started following the scence as early as 2010, being an active member in the community and trying to understand things also on a technical level.
