Born in 1971 in Gross-Gerau, Germany. I finished school in 1990 and started to study computer science at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Additionally to my studies, I worked in the Centre of Computer Graphics in the department of Animation and Image Communication. There, I've learned how to use my theoretical knowledge achieved at the university to program in C, C++, Lisp, and Java. My master's thesis was part of a project called "Personalized electronic Newspaper" at the WebOffice at CERN.
