who am i?
is where I was born in 1972 and where I have spent most of my
the turn of the century. More or less brief interludes away include
a couple of school exchanges with Toulouse/France, Oxford/UK,
as well as year at the University
of Keele/UK. After finishing my studies at Bonn University I took
a year off to pursue postgrad research. During that year I spent
time in the US
and the UK again.
very infancy I have always been interested in computers (and
wasted a tremendous
chunk of my youth in front of them) and during university I became
quite involved in web-based programming and homepage design.
The result is
little 'company' for Internet-based programming that I run with a very good friend. It's more of a hobby though as there's not really
much time my real job, teaching, leaves me.
I am teaching English, History, History in
English, and occasionally Philosophy at Kopernikus
Gymnasium Duisburg Walsum, on the northern fringe of
the Ruhr area. I'm married with three beautiful kids. If time allows I'm still working on my Landrovers.
