Projects

The journey into web development began with a fascination for code and evolved into a commitment to creating user-oriented, accessible and pixel-perfect websites using modern techniques. I am currently working as a freelancer in Berlin.

As a WordPress specialist, I became familiar with the Gutenberg ecosystem early on. This has led to a number of website launches known for their user-friendly backends.

My first professional career took me as a classical percussion player, specializing in modern music, to ensembles and orchestras. Through demanding studies in Detmold (DE) and a master’s degree in Amsterdam (NL), I learned structured learning methods and improved my communication skills in a team.

I am a long-time expert in common programming languages and tools, including:

  • HTML5
  • PHP
  • JavaScript
  • CSS/Sass
  • React/Gutenberg
  • Web Accessibility
  • GIT version control
  • Shell

I have successfully completed the following courses in recent years:
