About me

CV (eng)
information security engineer
Holbeinstraße 96, 01309 Dresden

I started early to learn some things about the craft of programming. Years later I noticed it was a keylogger my brother asked me for. Now I have over a decade of experience in professional software engineering. The experience I have gained in various projects is much more important than a perfect university career. The ability and willingness to get deep into new topics and learn various things is essential in IT business. As the progress in IT tends toward getting more and more ubiquitous topics like data security and privacy are getting important. For companies who look for a USP this is crucial. That is the direction I want to evlolve to.
