An engineering manager based in Karlsruhe, Germany.
I empower people to become the best version of themselves.
After finishing my bachelor's degree in applied computer science, I started working as a frontend engineer with a big focus on design systems, user experience and performance.
I got involved in open source development(new tab) early on and created widely used libraries, most prominently Fela(new tab), that are downloaded more than 12 million times each month.
In 2019, I decided to become a freelancer and worked for several big clients, including N26(new tab), OneGraph(new tab) and Volvo Cars(new tab).
After working as an engineer for almost a decade, I decided to focus on people and started working as an engineering manager at Carla(new tab).
In my leisure time, I study cultural science, learn Norwegian and otherwise spent my time outside in nature as much as possible, either with scouts(new tab) or alone on long hikes and trail runs.
I enjoy listening to music, play several instruments and write my first fantasy novel(new tab). I try my best living a self-sufficient life(new tab).
