I get excited about efficient coding solutions and UI design that makes sense. I also enjoy abstracting any thing or situation to its nucleus and I am in favour of a more open web.

Since my first steps in web design (which only my wife is entitled to have a glance at) I have come a long way: after school I went through a basic, overall media education at the SAE, followed by a 2-year specialisation in Audio Engineering at the same institute. Since Audio Engineering turned out to be more of a professionally executed hobby, I decided to give another field of interest of mine more professional attention and a solid knowledge foundation: Le web design.
In 2009 I finished my apprenticeship in Media Design at a large national web design agency, where I had been working directly with clients and their websites from the almost very start in 2007.
After the apprenticeship had ended I stayed with the same company for another two years collecting experiences as Coding Supporter, Best Practicer and Typeface Adviser. I also organised and held workshops besides dealing with my own projects and clients, and for the last year taking care of my own little five-unit-team.
In the beginning of 2012 after five years at my former company I felt it was time for some new experiences. So I decided to go freelance and to extend my horizons – literally.
