About Me

I'm a software engineer who loves to work with modern web technologies. I enjoy creating tools for developers and I've specialized in SDK development, observability and testing. I'm currently working at where I maintain Sentry's 15 JavaScript SDKs together with my amazing team. Previously, I studied computer science at Graz University of Technology while working as a web developer on JavaEE and Angular projects.

Aside from Software, you'll find me making music, flight simming and enjoying life in the beautiful city of Vienna. By the way, I'm a dog person!
