I came to Karlsruhe for my studies, started working at synyx and stayed here after switching to working as an independent developer and consultant. For years I helped running the local Java User Group, I am one of the founders of the Search Meetup Karlsruhe and most of my clients are from the area as well. Though my wife and myself liked it here we decided it's time for a change: We'll be relocating to Singapore for at least a year.

I am glad to announce that I'll start working as a developer at Zenika Singapore. I guess I'll still be doing search projects and hope that I can continue blogging from time to time. My consulting business will shut down at the beginning of February but if you would like to work with me that is still possible - you just have to talk to Zenika instead of myself. Thanks to all former colleagues, user group members and friends. I'd be happy to hear from you when you are in the area.
