I studied Computer Science at the Universität-Gesamthochschule Paderborn. During this time, I worked 3,5 years as Systemadministrator for FB10/Verfahrenstechnik (Process Engineering) as a part-time job.

In 1999 I joined SUSE LINUX, where I'm working in the distribution team on the SUSE LINUX core system. I'm also responsible for maintaining the infrastructure for building the distributions. I developed SUSE's SPARC distribution and I'm now one of the main responsible Projectmanagers for the SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server (SLES).

From May 2003 until December 2005 I was a member of the board of directors of the Free Standards Group, since them I'm in the LSB Steering Committee.

In my spare time I read books, play board games, hack on my Linux box or go dancing.

You want to know what I'm programming on? Look at my Linux NIS/NIS+ pages on www.linux-nis.org, there you will find everything you need to turn your Linux box into a NIS server and NIS or NIS+ client.

I have also written some PAM modules and applications for SuSE Linux. The goal was to replace the shadow suite by a PAM solution, which is as compatible as possible and uses nearly the same config files and options.

Meanwhile I'm active in the OpenStreetMap project. Since nearly everything in my area is already available, I concentrate mainly on fixing bugs and building my own Maps for GARMIN devices. Since the maps are mainly from the german ara, all pages are in german.
