This passion for creation led me through a path of Java and ABAP Product Development, eventually guiding me into leadership roles. Over the last 15+ years, this evolution has not only expanded my technical skills but also deepened my expertise in Agile methodologies, enabling me to lead Scrum teams across global landscapes.

My Personal Journey

My life’s journey has taken me through different countries, including stays in France, China, Japan, Indonesia, United Kingdom, and finally Germany, enriching me with diverse cultural experiences and a broad worldview. Beyond the professional realm, my optimistic outlook on life anchors me, even as I critically observe the world’s unfolding changes. Though family responsibilities have moderated my engagement with hobbies, my enthusiasm for music, from composing on the piano to producing electronic music on the computer, going to the gym, or even learning Spanish, remains a vital source of personal satisfaction and creativity. On the tech frontier, I follow with high interest the current AI development, and take joy in developing personal apps using latest Java frameworks, as well as maintaining validator servers using distributed apps for Proof-Of-Stake cryptocurrencies.
