During my career as software developer I was involved in many exciting projects.
  • I had a colorful start with game development for the succesful Amiga computers.
  • I'm a certified MySQL expert and designed and managed high performance database centers and webservers. I work as Database performance consultant and even developed my own lowlevel database engine.
  • I wrote numerous general applications for many operating systems
  • Last but not least, I had the pleasure to take part in the development of a 3D-GFX-card doing the hardware design, the GFX-chip design and the driver development.
