to be so rough

Who I am

I have been a developer for almost 20 years. My first steps I made with the creation of websites and forums. Afterwards plugins and extensions for forum systems followed. Later I decided to do contract work on a part-time basis, which I continue to do today. In addition, I worked full-time as a freelancer for four years and then successfully founded and managed a digital agency for three years. On my way I got to know many industries and ways of working. I have profound knowledge in working with agencies and small businesses. Currently I work full-time as a software developer at sipgate GmbH.

CLINQ.ai | sipgate GmbH

Since 2020 there is a new focus in my team and I am happy to be part of it. Under CLINQ.ai we bundle a big sipgate canvas: Artificial Intelligence. With the AI-First approach, we optimize telephony for our customers and augment live conversations with useful information. It is a lot of fun to dive into the depths of machine learning. My daily tasks include data acquisition, model training and the provision of the infrastructure.

A lot of ideas and motivation led me in 2015 to found a company together with my colleagues in order to develop things that the market needs. The result was a very solid web agency with a loyal client base and many great projects, from small to large. But despite the success, I missed the implementation of the original idea at the time of founding. That's why I decided to leave the company as managing director and look for interesting companies on the market.

Many great things

I'm trying to summarize the time a little: Awesome! I don't think they will be able to say that I left anything out. One of my characteristics is that I am interested in different areas and enjoy life. Therefore here only a summary of my professional career:

  • For many years I worked as a freelancer on and for various projects.
  • A great study as Bachlor of Sience at the FH-Aachen (Communication and Multimedia Design).
  • I spent a formative time in the agency world and learned what it means when topics are passed back and forth.
  • A detour into the insurance industry with the licence to the tö... ehm... Sell insurances.
  • An apprenticeship as information electronics technician and subsequent three years in the activity on the way.
