Grew up in a small town in Germany stone's throw from the Netherlands and Belgium. I left for college in Chicago, stayed there for graduate school and now started up a business here.
I work in software development and non-profit consulting, I'm really enjoying running my own company and helping my non-profit clients thrive.
Spend two summers in Cambridge, United Kingdom, greatly enjoying the beautiful fens and real ales. Did a field season in Antarctica, very fond memories. Enjoyed traveling through Europe on a culinary tour through France, Italy and Greece.
I enjoy spending time with people passionate about food, culture, live jazz/blues or dance. Positive attitude towards life and others, willing to learn new things.
I've taught Swing dancing (Lindy Hop) for several years, so you can always ask me for a dance lesson. If you want to learn about some neat open source software tools, I'd be happy to share what I've learned over the years. I've helped streamline several businesses and non-profits, so if you need someone to bounce your business ideas off of, I'm a willing accomplice and good listener.
