I was born in 1962 in Bad Ems, a small spa-town close to the river Rhein. I studied physics at the University in Göttingen (Niedersachsen) in Germany and got my diploma degree in 1989. Later I finished my academic career with an phd in physics and computer science. I worked at DLR fulltime from March 1989 at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics.
In April 1999 I joined Sun Microsystems as a "Technology Consultant" in Hamburg. Late 2001 (December) the new challenge of leading the operational & technical affairs as CTO for energis-ision has started. The company was merged with another ISP (easynet) in June 2002.
During 2004 I worked as CTO at AOL Germany in Hamburg. Early 2005 I decided to focus again more on cutting edge technology and I moved to ORGA Kartensysteme as CTO & VP Intl. Research and Development. After a very successfull year the privately owned company was acquired by a french giant holding (Safran/Sagem) who decided to discontinue with the former management.
Currently I am looking for interesting opportunities mainly in the web 2.0 space as well as in the security field.
There is Fun and there is Work and the family
... and for some reasons I have my resume (pdf-german) always ready !
Most of my publications , talks and projects were done during my research time at DLR. Most of this work continues now with Prof. Helmut Sobieczky.
