A few words about this website

The person

I’m a webdesigner and frontend developer living in the capitol of Lower Saxony, Hanover, where I landed in fall of 2012. However I took my first breaths in Aurich, a small but even beautiful town in East Frisea, which lies near the Northsea.

This website is my business card, or more my digital playground in the world wide web. Here I can do whatever I want and I’m happy to welcome you to this website.

The portfolio

It’s my showcase where I want to expose my skills and competencies. I invite you to take a look around and learn more about my work. It shows a selection of my best work. Most of this stuff are freelance projects or own projects.

My own projects are those projects with no restrictions and that’s a lovely kind of work. But working for my clients makes me also happy. You like what you see? No problem. Say hello and speek with me about your project.

The blog

Blogs are great, especially if it’s the own one where you can write about this and that. Here I write about things related to my work, things I like, products and app reviews, little code snippets and tutorials and all the other things I want the world to know about.

The blog is like a little diary. Not really a personal one, but at least one of those where I’ll take a look into from time to time.

I create and build websites to give great pleasure and let you invite to come back. The development part is very important to me to keep trying and don’t miss new technologies and standards. Besides that, it’s also a good variety to the design part.
