About

I started this blog in 2023 with the intention to share what inspires me in web development and which topics resonate with me. Contact me on LinkedIn and Mastodon, I’m always up for a chat!

A bit of my personal history … After an exciting era of 8-bit home computers in the 1980s, I got fascinated by web technology at the end of the 1990s and this curiosity fuels my passion since then every day. I love doing frontend and have worked in all aspects of frontend development, including the early “wild west” years (when CSS wasn’t even a thing), to the “Web 2.0” evolution with Responsive Web Design to Single Page and Progressive Web Apps — and everything beyond that nowadays.

In my 25 years of web development, I have been involved in developing agile enterprise web products for over 15 years. Some of the clients I have worked with include Congstar, Frankfurt Airport, and Deutsche Telekom.

Currently, I am part of BI X, the digital lab of Boehringer Ingelheim. In an international environment, I provide consultation to the business and to product team members on web and accessibility best practices and support product teams with frontend prototyping and engineering. Given the fast-changing nature of our field, I actively foster a positive engineering and learning culture through developer relations activities, to empower people growth and shape technology strategies.

This passion is also reflected in the Frontend RheinMain community hub which brings together tech companies, developers and knowhow. I’m the founder and facilitator of it.

In my free time, I enjoy indulging in computer nostalgia, playing both acoustic and electronic drums, taking photos with a “real” camera, hiking, playing board games, enjoying music live and on vinyl.
