About

Since 2001, I have been involved in the continuous development of websites and other web products. I am a Technical Project Manager with interdisciplinary expertise who specializes in Web development, online marketing, user experience (UX), Web accessibility (WCAG), internationalization, and domains names.

Between 2006 and 2014, I worked as a technical director and project manager, with and without personal responsibility, in international Web projects of different size and shape.

From 2014 to 2017, my focus was on management consulting for digital products. The creation of concepts as well as the collection and evaluation of decision-relevant data were my daily business.

Since 2017, I work as Senior Web Project Manager and Solution Architect for one of my long-term clients. During this time, I compiled an inventory of all globally existing web assets (domain names, websites, technical platforms, etc.) and developed a concept for modernization. The goal is to transform the various monolithic, silo-like web platforms into a modern (micro) service architecture and to harmonize front-end designs and data sources while keeping an eye on user experience and accessibility.
