As a kid I pressed buttons and switches before I could even talk at all. I started to teach myself Java since 7th grade. During high school I developed the Android app SensorMax, which visualizes the data from the sensors of smartphones. Encouraged by my CS-teacher, I participated in several contests like the national competition. As one of the best participants of the second round I got invited to the IOI training camp. I'm currently studying IT-Systems Engineering at the famous Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. In my free time I code my own projects dealing with home automation or as recently: a light system for music visualization.
