In 2016 I co-founded the digital product agency überdosis. I'm one of eight co-founders, so there are at least seven others claiming the same.
My first website has been about The Simpsons™ and was hosted on GeoCities.

It's nearly impossible to meet me without Philipp Kühn. We make the same bad jokes and love working together.
I launched the mildly successful project management platform Scrumpy (together with Philipp).
I think business should be nice and grow slowly, instead of trying to maximize the profit, but that's just me. At least I'm trying to live by these values with the companies I'm part of.
Keep it simple. This website is nothing more than a text file.
