Currently I am a full-time IT professional working as a network architect.
My goal is to build systems that scale by focusing on simplicity and efficency.

I am based on the countryside near Frankfurt, Germany. One of Europe’s main internet hubs.

My career is supported by a strong curiosity in Linux/Unix and networking systems which started already at age 13.

In my spare time I am attracted to exploring remote places and documenting the beauty and diversity of those in pictures.

This site

It all started in 2008 as a blog only. Mostly for documenting travels and photos for friends and family.

Time and interests changed and so came more and more technical content. With several redesigns personal content got left behind.

With the latest redesign I was focusing on combining personal and technical content again and am trying to recover some of my older posts.
