For each product I build, position I hold, and relationship I develop, I ask myself two questions:
First: Where can I solve technical problems?
Second: Where can I add value?
For me, answering these questions is the road to progress.
A lot happened to get to me to where I am now.
Lived in a German house, went to a German school, had german friends. Discovered soccer, punctuality, and culture.
Started a Computer Engineering degree building robots. Turns out I was really good at learning stuff and building stuff.
Learned some Russian, culture, and cold. Once I figured it out I found myself in leadership traveling around the gold ring.
Switched from CE, IS, to IT. Finally found UX and worked as a developer for a while. Now researching educational technology and looking for new opportunities.
Figuring out what it means to be a professional. Learning to empathize with system administrators, asset managers, and cyber security pros.
I lead a team of four talented student developers in building educational simulations for college freshmen.
