After my MSc in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the ETH-Zürich I started my professional career as a software engineer. This makes now more than 20 years of passion in this awesome domain.

During my career, I had the chance to contribute to a multitude of different IT projects and act in a variety of roles. From a junior software engineer learning the basics of C++ to an experienced solution architect today.

A special attention always relied in the software engineering process itself. Especially the agile methods convinced me from the start. I certified as Scrum-Professional in 2012 at the Scrum-Alliance. Next to the expertise within Software-Engineering and within the building of scaling, performant and robust IT solutions, I bring with me a long experience as an IT-consultant.

My current main topics of focus are Domain-Driven-Design as well as Cloud- and Microservices-based solutions.

I keep very good memories on the 5 years spent at university. I felt the motivation that an athlete probably feels while standing in the starting blocks. Surrounded by a wealth of inspiring peers and professors, my passion for learning and for engineering grew day by day. Challenging complex maths, fascinating discoveries within physics and electronics, awesome learnings in IT and computer technologies. Sometimes hard work but also a lot of fun and enough time for sports. This phase of study provided me with the best ingredients to start my professional career.
