About Me

Ever since I was a little kid I loved crafting and exploring all things technical. Later I grew a big passion for Open Source and the humanism philosophy. In my teenage years I started using Photoshop, later Linux (via the WeTab since late 2010), build my own (and for some friends) PCs/NAS. I’ve learn much about programming at the Claude-Dornier-Schule for Computer Science. With my good friend Daniel Schukies I found my first company Aimber GbR at the age of 18. After my graduation I moved to Stuttgart and studied Games Programming at the SAE Stuttgart. I'm currently writing my Honours Thesis in cooperation with Jumping Lamas about Blueprint vs C++ on the server with Unreal and life with my girlfriend in Friedrichshafen developing games.
