Hello!
I develop web things and products.

I'm a Product & Software Engineer with a background in Computer Science and a passion for Technology, Design and Web Performance.

Technology Stack & Experience.

The “Use the right tools for the job, not the ones you like most” mindset is important to me. Where reasonable, I like to work with a JavaScript Stack — preferably with React — but I'm not scared to touch new or different technologies if the project demands it.
I'm used to work with large-scaled applications and its requirements.

  • JavaScript
  • TypeScript
  • Node.js
  • GraphQL
  • React
  • Next.js
  • CSS-in-JS
  • GatsbyJS
  • Webpack

Process, Workflow & Product.

I like to work agile and in cross-functional teams and got experience from past wide-ranging agency and freelance projects.
To collaborate and be involved with UI / UX and Back-End colleagues to create fast and accessible results across the stack is my default.
I also enjoy technical discussions and efforts to improve the overall project workflow.

Quick History Lesson.

I started building things for the web professionally with WordPress, PHP and MySQL in 2006, then off to Laravel and MVC stuff, after a short detour to Ruby-land I finally arrived in the JavaScript / Node ecosystem. Let's see what comes next.

Currently working with the JAMstack and the concept of statically rendered apps with a Headless CMS behind the scenes.

Fun Facts:
— Years ago I used to fire up Cinema 4D & Photoshop to create wallpapers which were downloaded 800k times overall.
— Prior to discovering my passion for web and digital things I wanted to work in the car industry. Still a big car enthusiast and driver.
