You can read some of my words on Mastodon and some of my code on Codeberg. I'm fluent in both English and German.
When I finished school in 2007, I started working part-time (first during my civil service and then while studying). Since I started working on my master thesis in 2014 I am working full-time.
I am the team lead for the Web client of Komoot, an application that helps you plan and navigate your hiking and biking trips.

I also have two years of professional experience with Go, but don't like it. Out of frustration about Go, I started playing with Rust. In general, I like to play around with different languages (like Clojure or C#), I even wrote my own little language) a while ago

I listen to music on repeat when concentrating. It‘s weird that I‘m using Spotify for this purpose, but we have Spotify Duo so… yeah. The music changes a lot. My Spotify Wrapped in 2021 crowned me as one of the top people listing to Max Richter's Four Seasons. 2022 was more Architects (hat tip Bascht) and System of a Down (hat tip to my teenage angst). This might be because I did a lot of Go in the project (which is either because Go is close to the metal or driving me mad, you choose).
