Like Galileo said, curiosity is the force which enabled me to learn most of the things I know today. No matter if politics, information technology, or free time - I find areas of my interest everywhere.
Curiosity always is in the first place of a problem which wants to be solved.
- Galileo Galilei
Even in my early years I have been fascinated by everything around computers. Again driven by curiosity I began tinkering with Free Software like GNU/Linux because it provides more security and freedom when working and learning. Not least because of that I'm involved in the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and make my bread with my own IT service company and my work in policy and public awareness for the FSFE.
IT and politics rules huge parts of today's world. In order to learn more about the latter I finished a study in Political and Administrative Science and intensify this knowledge with my Master's in Political Science at the University of Münster. Fields of particular interest are internet and foreign policy and political communication.
In my free time I have been head of leadership and scoutmaster at the DPSG scouts in Konstanz before my move. Besides I enjoy playing guitar, table tennis and Pen&Paper role play games with friends or spend time on one of my various smaller projects.
