Work with me

I’m a Software Architect with 10+ years experience designing and building distributed business applications. I have been working on projects based in Germany, UK, US, Mexico, Spain as well as remotely, getting to know a wide variety of team cultures and work processes. I’m currently based in London, UK (originally from Germany).

In 2015, I founded together with business partner IT Hansa Consulting, S.L. We are an IT consultancy & matchmaker that empowers our clients to benefit from the advantages of a modern digitalized working world.

I may be available for hire as an independent contractor, or I can help you managing the right development team for your project via IT Hansa.
