Nice to meet you here. I feel honored you clicked this fancy icon. Let's face
it, I don't like curriculums. Yes, you are looking for a creative mind with special skills but also want to know
how she/he is like? That's fair. But do you really believe you'll find the answer in a
curriculum? I don't. But I'll give you useful(!) answers.
Since when are you coding?
I could lie and give you the answer you'll probably read in all of the curriculums: I started very
early when I was around eight years old. The time when Floppy was not only a dogs name but also some hardware piece, when you
had to start your PC (!) in DOS mode. The truth is, I did start at that time with basic HTML, followed by a period of
blogs made with 'blogspot', 'wordpress', 'Typo3', 'Tumblr'. Would you call that coding? I got more serious in 2016
when I did a fulltime Web Development course with CareerFoundry (Ruby on Rails) and another fulltime bootcamp in Amsterdam
single day and night.
Why should we hire you?
Because I am a great teamplayer, focused, highly self-motivated, creative and overall ambitious. For sure, it's all
true. But if I would be a bad teamplayer I wouldn't write it, would I? The reason you should hire me is passion. Yes, I am punctual,
meticulous and I have an eye for beauty - but passion is the main reason. I worked twelve years for one big huge company -
go to LinkedIn and find out who it is. It wasn't passion that held me there but I did a pretty good job. How gorgeous could my work be when
I do it with passion? Find it out.
What are your hobbies? Do you have a social life?
I do. Although I spend most of my time in my apartment (it's really nice and located in Berlin Kreuzberg opposite to the Gleisdreieck Park),
I love to go out for dinner, good coffee and lots of sport. I do CrossFit for the past three years and climb and boulder since then, too. I love cinemas
showing original movies, I can't stand dubbed versions. Travelling means freedom to me and I can spend all mylots of money for it.
The rest of the money goes into my stomach as I enjoy cooking and baking a lot (as long as it's sugar-free).
How can we reach out to you?
I would appreciate a nice handwritten letter but if that's too dramatic, let's chat on slack. I created a nice team for that case already:
I know it's a lot. So here's my little résumé for you:
I love it when colours complement each other, when forms and lines encourage the whole,
when thoughts and ideas turn into reality.
For me the syntax of code is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. It's like magic when numbers
transform into a charming arrangement of pieces. Pieces you've created by writing numbers
I love to code with:

"The New York Code + Design Academy teaches full-time and part-time courses in full-stack web development in New York City,
Atlanta, Austin, Philadelphia, Raleigh, Salt Lake City, Washington, DC, and Amsterdam." (Course Report)
February 2017, during a fulltime Web Development Intensive course at the New York Code and Design Academy we created a webpage
in a group of three people. Our project covers functions of a webshop connected to a PSQL database using node.js, sequelize, express
"A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog) is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web
consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries ("posts")." (Wikipedia)
Again in February 2017, a single project during the Web Development course was to build a blog application in which users were able to create a
post and in which all posts were visible on the first page. Men's notes was born: User can post notes, comment each others notes and
"A Friends Tale is an online magazine dedicated to absurd encounters, tragicomical stories
and delightful snapshots. It keeps an eye out for the entrepreneurs, the enfant terribles, the

Together with my sister, I founded 'A Friends Tale' in 2014. Until end of 2015 I was responsible for interviews and text.
