I lived in Berlin (Germany) until school was finished. Since this time (2001) I'm constantly moving between different countries. I was living and working in Hanover (Germany), Genova (Italy), Copenhagen (Denmark), Beijing (China) and Nanjing (China). Since 2011 I'm more or less permanent in Beijing. My medium-term target is to live and work for some time in Tokyo (Japan).
At the moment I'm a so called "Lead Engineer" for radio systems of mass transit projects in China. But from tip to toe I'm a software engineer. In the last couple of years I was mainly involved in the development of high frequency related projects. Before this time I developed software for industrial production systems.
Beside to this I'm involved in some open source projects like ruby and GNU Radio.
There is a list of articles and books I've written on real paper. Next to this I'm writing on bits and bytes in an english blog about mruby.
I'm a little bit involved in some open source projects. One of my all time favorite is the programming language ruby. Together with some good friends I maintain a german forum, wiki and blog about the language itself. From time to time I'm also attending and speaking at ruby specific events. I work quite intensive on mruby since May 2012 to make it an awesome Ruby implementation for a new area in which Ruby is currently underrepresented.
