I work as a Happiness Engineer for Automattic where I provide support for WordPress.com customers. Outside work, I organise WordCamps and WordPress Meetups both in Europe and Asia.
After my study in computer science in Germany, I moved to the Netherlands, where I worked for several companies as web developer and business analyst. Since mid-2014, I’ve been travelling through South-East Asia where I fight bugs between palm trees and rice fields.
