About me

🔥 I co-founded a digital agency three years ago, growing from zero to 40 people. I helped the company grow from zero to millions in revenue with a sustainable profit and solid development. Lately, I've been assisting early-stage startups in kicking off their product development.

👶 Growing up, I was always into computers and electronics. I had my computer, played around with BASIC, DOS, learned some scripting languages, and built my first PHP project when I was 13. After that, it kind of snowballed.

🚀 During the past 15 years, I've had the privilege to launch dozens of different products for different industries, worked with many startups, and released several open-source libraries.

🔧 Currently, my expertise lies in building and scaling development departments and launching products with early-stage startups. So instead of coding, im focusing more on people.

☕️ I love meeting up with people in real life. So here's an offer - if you live somewhere around Zurich (Switzerland) and want to chat, I'll buy you a coffee, no questions asked. I generally enjoy my Coffee on the weekends from 10:00 to 12:00, and you're welcome to join. Drop me an email, and we can work something out.
