Already in my childhood I was fascinated by computer science and video games. During my school time I took several programming courses at the Schülerrechenzentrum Dresden, where I am now active as a course supervisor in computer science. My studies then led me first into the field of transport sciences, which fascinated me with its many interdependencies and complex networks. Due to the lower proportion of computer science in my studies, I have been studying computer science at the Fernuni Hagen as a second degree course since 2015. At the same time I was given the opportunity to work in computer science at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg after my doctoral thesis.

I am member of the following organizations / societies:

Apart from all this, I am an enthusiastic sportsman, video games developer and try myself in FL Studio or LMMS every now and then. I am part of Bonfire Interactive, an indie startup from Aachen and Dresden in Germany, which I founded with my friend Alex.


Bonfire was officially founded in 2018, but work on our game Pale Blue Dot already started in 2016. Pale Blue Dot is RTS game with low poly graphics, completelly basing on an open source pipeline (e. g. Blender, Godot, Gimp). To support the development we are looking for freelancing contributors or employees which will help to make Pale Blue Dot happen.

The game is funded by the nordmedia – Film- und Mediengesellschaft Niedersachsen/Bremen mbH.
