I came to California from Germany in 1999 and have made Northern California my home. I have been a software developer for twenty-four years, specializing in user interface. I make programs sleek, user-friendly and very practical. I also have a keen eye for design, probably from my second career as a photographer. In my spare time, I play the guitar, ride motorcycles, listen to bluegrass and Americana music and dance Jitterbug. I also know how to use an impact driver pretty well and love to build things.
