About Me
About Me

Frontend developer in web3 and web2. My profession is helping people in reaching their technology and online needs. I started as a developer for custom online artist portfolios and am today working with theaters, NFT projects and the Metaverse.

After graduating as a Bachelor in Computer Science, I felt the need to study something not technical in order to bridge the lack of questioning in the technical sciences. With stations in Sociology and Gender Studies at the University of Vienna, I graduated in History and Philosophy of Science at TU Berlin, where my focus was always on the works of Michel Foucault and Tiqqun. With my experience in computer science and a technical understanding of Big Data, my master thesis was on its shifts in knowledge and power. I found that Big Data merges the disciplinary and the statistical powers of gouvernementality.

After joining the blockchain world in 2020, I am happy to have made the shift from investor to builder and am now freelancing in several NFT / Metaverse projects.
