I am a software developer, lean software architect, speaker, trainer and agile work evangelist, living near Cologne, Germany. I am working on the future of information technology.
I love boardgames and tabletops, making music and spending time with my kids. I am a Dungeon Master. Early in the morning I usually run.
Every now and then I am talking at events and conferences. I try to inspire people and I love getting inspired. Here's a list of where I have been.
