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 project manager 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 a german blog about the ruby programming language and some common stuff in a seperated english blog.
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.
