I was born in 1982 in the lovely city of Munich, Germany. Back in the day, history, natural sciences, and computers always fascinated me. Later on, my interest in programming ignited, and I implemented and directed smaller hobby projects.
At Siemens, I later learned the fundamentals of software engineering. Then I was drawn to the German Armed Forces, where I supported the SAP implementation and HR digitalization. After my service, I led the united-domains reseller subsidiary to restructure the value chain, set up a new team, and generate new growth.
Over the years, I steadily expanded my skills and responsibilities and broadened my focus. As a result, my expertise lies in developing corporate strategy, building operational structures, optimizing business processes, and increasing operational efficiency.
In 2011 I joined the united-domains Executive Committee to drive new products, streamline our processes, expand the business to the US market, and represent united-domains at global conferences. Since 2018 I have been part of the Board of Management, where I head technology and product management as CTO. In addition, I partner with my fellow board members to shape the strategic direction, push the growth by launching and optimizing products, and operate with sister companies executives on a competitive group strategy.
With over 20 years of hands-on experience in leading technology organizations, work is more than just a job for me. As an executive, I love to empower and support my team to develop great products. In addition, helping customers to realize their ideas makes me happy.
Apart from that, I am an active member of the Internet community and domain name industry:
Beyond that, I am an author of 5+ IETF Internet-Drafts and 10+ articles and love to support others. Therefore, I am a supporting Amnesty International member, the German Cancer Aid, Caritas, the German Red Cross, WWF, and Unicef.
During the Corona pandemic, I started a master's degree in E-Commerce and Online Marketing in 2020, finishing in early 2022.
What else to say: I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, and walking in my spare time.
If you have any questions that I can help with, please feel free to reach out on LinkedIn or Twitter. I look forward to speaking with you!
The IETF is the premier Internet standards organization. It follows open and well-documented processes for setting these standards. This is the recent RFC that I authored.
Registry Maintenance Notifications for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
This document describes an Extensible Provision Protocol (EPP) extension called Registry Maintenance Notification used by EPP servers to notify EPP clients and allow EPP clients to query EPP servers on maintenance events.
These are other IETF drafts that I authored.
