A modern IT infrastructure should help you and your business to perform at peak efficiency. But often enough existing solutions do not or not fully suit your needs. This can cost you a lot of time, headaches and money. Time to make your IT do what you want!
Sometimes it is hard to find software that does what you and your business really needs. In this case a tailor-made solution might be the best option for you. I have extensive experience with cloud and web-based solutions as well as real-time software.
Using modern methods of process engineering, I can help you identify and fix the parts and processes of your business that are not performing as smoothly and efficiently as they should.
With over 15 years of experience in the aviation world as pilot, flight instructor and consultant I can help with aircraft sales and aquisition, training, certification and imports. Be it individuals, maintenance providers or operators.
I started programming software and creating websites as far back as 2004. Back then I was still in highschool and did quite a bit of part-time webdesign work for small businesses, towns and clubs to save up some money for my biggest passion: flying.
To join those magnificent men in their flying machines was my childhood dream and in 2005 I finally took control of a glider for the first time. From there my involvement in aviation only got bigger and bigger. Over the following years I obtained several licenses and instructor ratings. Today I am the proud co-owner of a 1947 Cessna 140, fly skydivers in the legendary Pilatus PC-6, act as the head of training for a flight school and also train new flight instructors.
After highschool I studied physics at the venerable Heidelberg University. This gave me ample opportunity to hone my analytical skills and expand my knowledge in software development from webdesign to other areas, such as embedded systems and networks.
Towards the end of 2013, shortly after earning my Master's degree, I was given the chance to move from Germany to New Zealand to work with an aircraft engineering company. Over the following year I helped them to streamline their processes by creating a complete workshop management software we dubbed SAMMS, the Safer Aircraft Maintenance Management System, which is still in successful operation today.
After this exciting project and awesome time in New Zealand I came back to Germany to continue growing inside the aviation industry. I joined CAE, the leading provider of flight simulation and flight training solutions. First as a software developer and now as a system architect.
I am always open for new endeavors and challenges. So feel free to contact me with your needs!

IT systems are only as good as one can envision them to be. As system architect I try to find the best vision using modern methodologies like creating user stories and using modelling tools as e.g. Enterprise Architect. User stories are a very easy way to capture requirements, moving from scary technical jargon to something everyone can understand and express their needs with. Modelling helps to thoroughly analyze the status quo and future solutions for any issues. It is also a great way to generate documentation that is easy to read, allowing as many users as possible to participate in the discussion.
In more recent times I have extensively worked with C/C++, mostly in the area of flight simulation. Here multi-threaded real-time systems are used to simulate large scale synthetic worlds. In this capacity I also gained a fair amount of experience with scrum, Git, Python, Lua and automatic testing.
