What I’m up to These Days

I live in Cologne, Germany, with my wonderful wife. I am happy.

Last year I quit my job to establish myself as a freelance software engineer for non-goverment/non-profit organizations. This was huge for me, and so far it is going great. On the side, I am finishing another master’s degree in applied computer science at Fernuni Hagen (distance university).

I finished my first official 5K race! I am now running four times a week and training towards 12K—which is my running distance when three friends and I tackle the relay team marathon at Köln Marathon on October 6.

I want to get my Spanisch level to B1/B2. I am learning a little every day.

I would like to do more creative (coding) work and get into the space of serious games and museum apps.
