You are considering to work with me and you like to inform yourself about me beforehand? You would like to know something about me. I am glad about that! I do not know what exactly you are interested in. I'll start once and hope to reveal the most suitable of me. When I quit my job in 2017 to work independently, I was a bit scared at first. Previously, I had spent 30 years working comfortably in the public sector. The last 20 in a German Sparkasse. That was - looking back - never the right thing for me. But it made life easier for me at a time when our daughter was growing up. Everything has its good!

I'll start at the beginning:

I was born in 1969 and had an unspectacular childhood. After graduating from secondary school, I worked in the judicial service from 1986 to 1992. During this time, I attended the Telekolleg II part-time and graduated with the advanced technical college entrance qualification. From 1992 to 1997 I worked in the postal service. It was here that I first came into contact with computers while working at the IT Operations and Service Center of the Cologne Postal Directorate. In 1997, I moved to the IT department of a German Sparkasse. Here I was employed until 2017 - interrupted by parental leave - first as a system administrator in second level support and later as a programmer. In order to obtain a vocational qualification in the IT field, I attended a school of economics in the evenings from 1997 to 2000. At the end I had the permission to call myself staatlich geprüfte Betriebswirtin für Informationsverarbeitung. Afterwards I started studying computer science at the FernUniversität Hagen in 2000, which I successfully finished in March 2006 with the degree Master of Computer Science.

In 2007 I created the first website for a friend. This work challenged me in a positive way. Thereupon I took the course Graphic Designer PC (SGD) at the Studiengemeinschaft Darmstadt and finished it with an exam. In addition, the desire to share my knowledge with others began to grow in me. I first wrote and published books for KnowWareVerlag, later for BookBoon and today as a self-publisher. Since 2017, I have been working exclusively on my own. I program custom web applications, write technical publications in the IT field and create websites.

Why do I write? There are several reasons. One of my drives is that creating texts enriches me. Yes, I document for myself. I find that writing down thoughts helps me sort out the many informations in my head. Also, I put facts on paper because I know other people will benefit from it - just as I benefit from reading text by other authors. It doesn't matter whether it's fiction or technical literature.
