Certificates and References

I usually acquire all capabilities and learn what I need to know in order to realize my projects myself. This unfortunately means that nobody will issue me an official certificate for these self-acquired or self-trained capabilities. However, as testimonial I'd like to point you to some of my projects which I've realized myself, e.g.

  • I've designed our house, including construction plans and drawings. And I have supervised the construction phase including project management, contracting and construction site management. In this project I finally understood what really makes up successful project management.
  • I operate my own cloud server on the basis of OpenStack using Ceph as storage backend. With this setup I can explore the potential of cloud technology, but my data will stay with me on my own servers.
  • I've created this website myself. So I have a better control on the information about myself that spreads on the internet.

I'm presenting more projects on the projects page and I'd like to invite you to take a look and find out more about me.

What I'm looking for

  • The opportunity to lead my own team, to get more things done in a better way
  • Options to learn, to evolve and to explore and tap my full potential
  • Challenges to stimulate my own evolution
  • The step into new worlds and unknown terrain
