A little about me

I am a Computer Science graduate, and my main area of expertise is software development. Having been programming since 1998, I have had the chance to work with various programming languages and technologies. I am a self-taught Android developer, and have been developing apps and games (and a game engine called Artenus) since 2012. Currently I work as a software developer in the German AdTech company Active Agent AG.

Beside programming, I am also passionate about writing, and that is what I retreat to whenever I get bored.
