I’m a developer at unfun, working on frontend (JavaScript/HTML/CSS), backend (PHP, Python, NodeJS) and devops (shell and Python scripts, build systems, deployment, Apache configuration, tooling) stuff.

I think free/libre/open source software is a great idea. You can look at my humble repositories on GitHub. I like the shiny Apple products, too, but I still keep a ThinkPad with Ubuntu GNU/Linux around.

In 2014, I helped to found Edel Extra, a local art collective and exhibition space, and was member of the board for a year or so. Now I just keep their email accounts running. They do great work and are very nice, funny and inspiring people.

I have a band called König Schmierstoff where I play the ukulele. Actually, a baritone cigar box ukulele custom-made for me by Bastian Ortner.

My friend Lilly Urbat and me do a podcast about online culture (which sounds better than we just talk about whatever we like to). The podcast, named 404, has a website and a twitter account and a facebook page. Oh, and it’s in german.

In winter semester 2016/2017, I gave a course with my colleague Michael Seibert at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg about the (then) current aesthetics of social media. A result of the collective work is the website that can now be visited at
