Tech Visionary & Artistic Soul

About Me

The Integration of Intellect, Art, and Visionary Drive

Welcome to the heart of my digital realm. Here, I invite you to immerse yourself in my multifaceted world, a tapestry of technological mastery, artistic ingenuity, and transformative visions. Located in the idyllic landscapes of Wetterau, just a stone's throw from Frankfurt / Rhein-Main, my work is as inspired by my surroundings as it is by my relentless drive for holistic excellence.

The Technological Dimension

From early tinkering with electronic components to a self-taught proficiency in programming, my technological journey has been both extensive and exhilarating. Today, my expertise is not merely theoretical but rigorously applied across a range of disciplines including hardware, software, networking, and server management. I believe in community-driven innovation, contributing to open-source initiatives while also maintaining a roster of my own groundbreaking projects.

My role as the architect of Neoground GmbH for over 4 years reflects this consummate skill set. Started 9 years ago as a freelance business, the company grew and now transcends traditional IT consultancy, branching into realms of AI, web and app development, digital strategies, and proprietary SaaS products. Whether mentoring in educational institutions or offering targeted corporate training, my mission goes beyond commercial success; I aim to effect systemic change through the transformative potential of technology.

The Artistic Dimension

Photography, my second vocation, serves as a conduit for my creative spirit. For more than 14 years, my lens has chronicled a myriad of life's moments — from intimate wedding ceremonies and studio shoots to the frenetic energy of live concerts. My pursuit of visual storytelling isn't confined to traditional avenues; it ventures into groundbreaking technologies such as drones, 360° cameras, and satellite imagery, a testament to my continual innovation.

The Integration and Beyond

But the essence of who I am transcends these individual pursuits. My forays into high-frequency technology, smart home solutions, and micro-tech projects like Raspberry Pi and Arduino embody a passion for cutting-edge technological applications not just in professional settings but in everyday life.

The scope of my interests is panoramic. Whether it's stargazing, cooking up culinary masterpieces, traversing uncharted terrains, or philosophically dissecting societal trends, each activity contributes to my holistic perspective on life. Through my writings — both on my personal blog and my company's bilingual platform — I share these intricate layers of my persona, connecting with a global audience keen on insightful, transformative dialogue.

The Continuous Journey

At the core of my ethos is a boundless curiosity and a commitment to lifelong learning. My quest for knowledge isn't a mere hobby; it's an integral part of my identity that fuels my quest for systemic betterment across diverse domains.
