About Me

I am a Database Architect, Performance Engineer & System Administrator living in Bonn, Germany. I have managed high-end Unix Systems for more than 20 years and mission-critical Oracle Databases for more than 15 years.

I have a profound background in network & storage technologies, virtualization and high-availability concepts. I have hacked Puppet, PostgreSQL, Emacs, OpenLDAP & Sendmail and contributed to the FreeBSD operating system.

Furthermore, I code Puppet, SQL, PL/SQL, Perl, Ruby and C. Emacs, LaTeX and R are my prefered tools on the job.

I hold a Diplom (equiv. M.Sc.) in computer science from the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. I completed certification programs from Oracle (Oracle Certified Professional), Sun (Sun Certified System Administrator), Puppet (PCP-2014) and the Linux Professional Institute (LPIC-1 Linux Administrator, LPIC-2 Linux Engineer, LPIC-3 Enterprise Professional Virtualization & HA and LPIC DevOps Tools Engineer).

Happy Hacking,
