I am an IT allrounder from Frankfurt with more than 20 years experiences in the planning and realization of digital projects. In the last years I’m alternately working as CIO, CTO, founder, managing director, consultant, project manager, conversion optimization expert, designer, marketing expert, web developer, and devops engineer. I am also a sparring partner for colleagues from IT, product management, marketing, as well as managers and decision makers. Currently I am also having a leadership role at a fintech company in the blockchain space.

Throughout my career, I was able to gain a lot of insights in a variety of business models and companies. In the first ten years, my work was mainly focused on B2B solutions, but in between the focus also shifted to end customers. Today I’m back on the B2B side. I have a hands-on approach to my work, because I have actively worked on many digital projects. By combining creativity, flexibility, and perseverance, I became a team player and learned how you can create successful solutions or those which do not work. My work usually involves to lead people to the next step. I don’t just implement IT projects, but also support their success as a coordinator. In short: I ensure progress.

I am officially and multiple times certified by Google, AWS (Amazon Web Services), and Scrum.org. From time to time I also write articles and guest posts. I have been working with blockchains and other distributed ledger technologies since 2015. My fascination for solutions in these areas is the reason why I today work full-time with blockchains.

If team members are not motivated, the likelihood of delay increases.

… creating the right solution for a given target audience, evaluating ideas, and justifying my opinions. I am trained to create concepts by myself and know how to judge and implement concepts by others. When someone is presenting a concept to me, I can grasp the capabilities of its author and explain how well it is understandable.

By applying strategic concepts for web projects and attending website optimization trainings, I learned what the drivers are for making a product successful. And by coordinating teams of developers, I was able to learn hands-on IT project management early in my career.

In short: know-why and know-how.

A goal without a concept and a lack of measurable metrics is just an idea.

In the last few years I attended a large number of technology, management and communication trainings. Some of these trainings were leading to an official certification. I am constantly educating myself whenever I have time to. That’s why I love to travel by train instead of the car: I can use the time there for getting better and learning new things. I especially use video trainings nowadays.

Google Certifications
I am long-term trained to use a variety of Google products and services which play a role in online sales. Among the Google tools I am skilled are Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Optimize, Google Ads, and the Google Marketing Platform. I am also Google Analytics Certified and own a Google Mobile Sites Certification.
AWS Certifications
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the largest cloud services provider with about 50% market share in the cloud services market (according to Gartner research). Since 2018 I use services of the AWS Cloud like EC2, S3, VPCs and CloudWatch almost every day. I am an officially accredited AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate and AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner.
Blockchain Certifications

In January 2022 I took up a new professional challenge as Head of DeFi/Node Operations at Blocksize Capital. This was one of the reasons for taking crypto certifications. The first training of this kind was passing the Certified Bitcoin Professional (CBP) exam. Then I took the Certified DeFi Expert exam provided by the Blockchain Council, which was about a general understanding of the market Decentralized Finance.

Scrum Certification
Scrum is a project management framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. I am officially certified by Scrum.org as Professional Scrum Master.

In addition to these official IT certifications, I have a training authorization in accordance with §§ 28 – 30 of the German Berufsbildungsgesetz (BBiG) from the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce for the IT educations in application development (Fachinformatiker/in Anwendungsentwicklung) and system integration (Fachinformatiker/in Systemintegration). This means that I am officially allowed to train young IT specialists according to the German labour education law.

From time to time I am also attending technology meetups in Frankfurt, especially of course the DeFi meetup.

Good employees in a company do not need a manager, they need orientation and support.

I love my fields of knowledge and I am grateful for every day that I can work to implement ideas. I am used to working with a wide variety of personalities, whether young or old. I am innovative, active, emotional, and strategically thinking. Thanks to my positive attitude, I motivate people working with me and create solutions which perform.


I have been dealing with cryptocurrencies and blockchains since 2015 and follow developments in distributed ledger technologies. I have run my own Bitcoin miners and a Bitcoin Full Node in the past.

In my opinion, blockchains driven by smart contracts have the potential to become the greatest trend since the invention of smartphones. Such modern blockchains will be game changers to many industries in the the years to come, especially in the areas of finance, insurance, and real estate.

A project is doomed to underperform or fail if its management is bad.

In addition to my passion for IT, I’m active as a business angel, consultant, and investor. I am also a member of the Digital Euro Association, a think tank about central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), stablecoins, crypto assets, and other forms of digital money. I’m also organizing meetups about digital assets and contribute to the development and adoption of digital asset identifiers.


When I am not working or self-educating myself, I enjoy my free time travelling and visit places I have not been to. As a hobby, I sometimes write articles or take pictures. Afterwards I publish some of the materials on SKYLINE ATLAS. The SKYLINE ATLAS is a real-estate portal about Frankfurt and its skyline with more than 1 million readers per year. I originally founded the platform in 2017.
