Biography

In the beginning...

As a former East German at the age of 13, I was exposed to a few dinosaur Robotrons at the community Pioneer House. I learned to program in Basic and played Cave before graduating to a Commodore 64.

Fall of the Berlin Wall

After 1989, a couple of friends and I began a start-up Internet Campaign to provide every German a computer for less then 1000 dm (roughly $600). One of our advertising strategies was www.happyhour-berlin.de, a website for the savvy drinker, where I learned the ins and outs of databases.

University 1990s

I gained rudimentary knowledge of HTML, Java, SQL and PHP in my IT Economics program at the Humboldt University, Berlin.

21st Century Man

Berlin on Bike! A buddy and I grew this side business of 16 bikes to a legit company serving over 10,000 customers by 2006. It was my first big success in understanding the power of digital marketing, sealing my fate as a professional web programmer.
