Born and raised in Coburg, Germany I relocated to Innsbruck, Austria in 2018 to study and climb.
I'm passionate about professional software development. After my bachelor's degree in Information Systems, I worked for three years developing an international e-commerce platform. I will accomplish my master's degree Computer Science in 2020.
I have gathered great experiences on my first big mountain project, the Kilimanjaro, as well as from alpine tours across the alps. Another important thing in my life is travelling. So far I've visited around 20 countries including Chile, Malaysia, China, and the USA. More are about to follow.
