Working with PHP since 2006, tried various frameworks. Using symfony/ silex with vagrant and git most of the time now. Some WordPress and ZF for legacy projects.
Did start with (bio)mathematics in Greifswald. Finished with a solid background in theoretical informatics, math and most other sciences but they dropped the diploma a year to early to catch up.
Worked on various good projects with suralin, webgilde, foobugs and toocan. Otherwise enjoying family life far from 'civilisation' as it may be called.
