Work is much more than just a job to me. I am really enjoying empowering and supporting people to build new products and services, creating and refining ideas and strategies, challenging and testing new cool ideas, and making things happen.
Through the years I managed to establish a broad contact network and to build up a very solid expertise, especially on product and business development. I am comfortable dealing with all kinds of things and getting my own hands dirty.
As board member for technology, product development, strategic partnership and industry engagement of united-domains the essential part of my role as CTO is to empower and to support my distributed team to build great new products, to further improve and to transform our technology stack, to streamline our business processes, to develop our IT and product strategy and roadmaps, to engage with our 200+ worldwide external partners and suppliers, to represent our interests, to contribute to industry committees, and to represent united-domains at EMEA, APAC and America conferences.
Beyond that, I am the Vice Chair / CTO of the ICANN Registrar Stakeholder Group, the Co-Chair of the ICANN Contracted Party House TechOps subcommittee, an Ambassador of the Universal Acceptance Steering Group, a member of the eco Names & Numbers Steering Committee, the organiser of a biannual German domain name event, called Domain-Stammtisch München as well as the Founder and Editor in Chief of an event calendar that lists upcoming domain, hosting and internet industry meetings and conferences, called MyNext.Events.
Furthermore, I was a Member of the Content Advisory Board of NamesCon and WorldHostingDays before it got dissolved, and a volunteer at Mozilla to support the Public Suffix List and the Universal Acceptance for two years.
When I am not working, I am going for walks, reading, doing further studies and spending time with my family.
These are recents drafts and documents that I worked on at IETF.
These are recent articles that I wrote about IT, Hosting, Domain Names and other stuff.
Domain Name Basics is a series of presentations meant to be an overview and training material for newcomers in the domain name industry. These materials are not intended to be exhaustive.
An overview of articles, press releases and media in which I was mentioned. Nothing special, just a collection.
