Why the Web?

About 6 years ago, I created my first website as an assignment for the media informatics module of a degree program by the same name. It was the very first time I got to see HTML and CSS and understood how to create a very simple website.

The page only consisted of a single image, a heading, two paragraphs of text and a big background gradient all over the page – but however small the website was and unpleasing it looked, I had a blast creating it and thus found a new passion.

Now, 6 years and many websites later, I have taken the time to fulfill my dream of creating my own personal site, which was a slightly more complex task – but still as much fun as all those years ago.

Here is what I have learned over the years and what I am currently focusing on.


Behind the Screen

After my studies and some experience from working as a student in an advertising agency, I wanted to be able to take on jobs independently. So I filled out all the paperwork and became self-employed relatively quickly towards the end of 2021.

Since then, I've worked alongside some interesting people and companies, for whom I've created the following projects.

“Well... Not everybody makes it to the bottom of the page, but you are one of them! So why don't say hello and have a chat about anything you are interested in? I would also greatly aprreciate feedback on the site or just a friendly conversation. Looking forward!” - Nikolai
