Born on the 31st of january 1972 in Berlin, Germany, I grew up in Elten, a small village of about 4,800 inhabitants, which is close to Emmerich where I visited the basic primary and grammar school. After that I did visit a vocational school focusing on economics, law and administration and spend one year on a private school for economics.
Meanwhile, at the age of 13, I got my first computer: a Commodore 64. As a result of a broken game, which accompanied it, I took it’s compendium and started learning Basic and Assembler. Later I bought an Commodore Amiga and finally my first MS-DOS based PC.
