MY STORY

Passionate entrepreneur, software engineer, team player, athlete, musician and traveller.
After finishing highschool at KWR Hanover, Germany, I trained as an IT specialist in application development at Heise Group Hanover. At the beginning of my studies at Passau University in Bavaria, I founded my first company with a fellow student, a small advertising agency. We published a magazine named „PinUp“ were students were able to advertise their stuff for free – instead of pinning it to the hallways boards.

During the semester break, I worked regularly at PubliTec GmbH in Hanover on CRM software and a document management system. After completing my degree in business administration at Passau University I founded my first software company „Natural Information Technologies“ with a fellow student. We developed a reporting tool for a large publisher in Hanover. At the same time I attended the Music College of Freiburg in Breisgau. My life was determined by studying, practicing the piano, and programming.
 
In December 1996, two friends and I founded the „Runtime Company“ in Hanover, Germany. We provided software and services to directory publishers in Europe and the United States. Our company grew fast – too fast. At the end of 2001, we had to break up our team of 25 people. Hard times. In 2002 we continued with a more focused team and founded „WKG Software GmbH“, whose happy CEO I am today.
When my co-founder immigrated to the United States in 2009, we startet to develop iOS apps for startups. Meanwhile, we have developed over 20 customized cross-platform-apps for different purposes and a variety of product owners – entrepreneurs and corporations. Our largest startup – YummyBus – reached over tens of thousand app downloads, 12,000 recurring customers and over 40,000 food deliveries from a collection of more than 300 articles.

PORTFOLIO

A selection of professional and private projects over the past few years.

BLOG

I write about startups, software projects, ideas and experiences with my colleagues and partners every day.

SKILLS

My strengths as a software developer lie in the conception, implementation, distribution and training of complex commercial application systems and mobile apps for companies of many sizes and industries.
During my studies at the university, I founded my first company with partners and have since taken on the role of CEO in various startups. I love working with my team and to take on new projects.
