I studied media informatics and media and game design. I currently work in the digital education industry as a project manager and XR developer. Most projects you find here were developed during my studies or my free time. They range from games to XR, web and mobile applications with a focus on frontend development and 3D visualizazion. I am interested in creating interesting designs, both visually and conceptually, that not only educate, but transform the user by creating new perspectives.
I am married to my wonderful wife Johanna Daher and we live together in the beautiful city of Magdeburg, Germany. In my free time I like to code, watch and (sometimes) write about movies (you can find me on letterboxd). I enjoy games of every kind (computer games and board games) and try to get into chess from time to time. I love to be outside, spend time gardening, on a bike or reading a good book somewhere. I have an awful taste in music (according to my wife), like to travel and appreciate a good cup of coffee in the morning or tea in the afternoon. You can find some of the more important details of my work life below.
