This is me and a mighty team of people connected with me.
portalZINE is a hub for converging technologies, riding the wave of the new media revolution since 2002. Wow!
Most of the time those technologies feel like our own personal super powers!
Over the past years I have shown my customers, that even small projects can level up with the big names in the industry.
I believe in secure, flexible and fast solutions, that make it easy to adapt to new challenges as fast as needed.
Big ideas often seem impossible to build on a smaller budget, I think that almost anything is possible with the right tools and ideas.
I love to explore new roads and help my customers to reach goals fast. Let me help you to bring those ideas to life!
A question that always comes up: Why is your website in English, when you are German?
As a coder & designer I have always been an international spirit. I lived in Africa for a while, played D&D with my english friends, was project manager for an international open source project, worked at and founded a startup in Mexico … English always was the connecting language and that is what sticked with me. Most of my projects are outside of Germany and I often intentionally look for those kind of projects! More about me here.
Technology is often provided right out of the box, but that does not make it a fit solution for everyone.

WordPress is not just for blogs anymore! WordPress is a complete content management system (CMS), with a huge variety of ready to use solutions and an open core to make almost anything happen.
