My first website was all about frames and tables and the fascination about what a few HTML tags can create. Thankfully frames and tables are long gone but my fascination for coding and the fast-paced ever-changing web environment remains.
I admire well designed websites but I'm always eager to discover how they are built. The perfect website is a blend of art and technology designed for the user. And I love it when it all falls into place.
I have a degree in Media Technology from Germany and currently work as a Web Developer.
