Still being a small boy playing in the sandbox, my parents and I moved to the most beautiful city Bielefeld. I went there for one year to the kindergarten before I started primary school at the Osningschule in 1998.

After primary school I went on to secondary school being the Helmholtz-Gymnasium. There, I gained some fairly extended knowledge about software development and a deep understanding of Object Oriented Programming using Java.

Also, I was involved in the layout process of the student newspaper and later on in the data acquisition and layout process of the graduation book.
