“Nothing is impossible. Not if you can imagine it.”

—Professor Hubert Farnsworth

I’m a passionate Python programmer and software engineer at energy & meteo systems.


My programming career started with HTML and PHP. I created Halo Orbit, which became — by a lot of work and passion — the biggest German-speaking Halo fansite at that time.

I studied computer science with a focus on ecoinformatics and graduated with a diploma (a master’s degree). During my studies, I tried different languages and finally discovered Python in 2008, which I immediately fell in love with.

After my studies I worked as a scientific assistant at OFFIS in Oldenburg, Germany. My work centered around Smart Grid simulation and the development of mosaik.

I was co-founder of the OFFIS spin-off Particon, but that didn’t work out.

Currently, I work at energy & meteo systems, where I am responsible for our Python dev workflow and infrastructure tooling. I also develop microservices for our Kubernetes platform, work on GUI tools, and organize seminars from time to time.
