Well, now that you are here, I would also like to satisfy your curiosity and write something about me – or stop! Why should I write about myself – let’s just leave the word to others…
Wikipedia has looked into the origin of my first name. Originally it is said to derive from the Hebrew Absalom (אַבְשָׁלוֹם) and loosely translated it reads “Father of Peace”. True, of course.
Urban Dictionary really knows me the best… 😆 😉 The thing with the prick I simply overlook…
The German edition of Wikipedia knows me and contains a summary of some of the stations of my driving. There I am listed as a German music producer, remixer and DJ, co-founder of the association Pro Rauchfrei. That is absolutely correct…
On LinkedIn two people wrote me a recommendation and it’s not that bad (Thanks again for that!) …
A few of my enemies call me a profiling, unsuccessful musician and because I have worked for a healthier society within the framework of my voluntary work for Pro Rauchfrei as a fanatic, Nazi and someone who incites sedition etc.
Well… There are always critics and people who, as a result of personal consternation, go over the top… I see it with humor and can’t really take the sources of such insults seriously either. In addition, the success of the commitment ultimately proves me right.
By the way… I make music primarily for myself and do this as a hobby – commercial success is not a relevant factor. In this respect it is only important that I have fun – and I really do 😀
Professionally, I’m working for a globally present IT company in the public administration and public service sector as a Senior Business Analyst for some time. In addition to the typical analyst activities, my tasks include agile transformation, agile project management, conducting workshops, occasionally speaking at events, drafting contracts and sales activities. Sounds boring, but is in fact very exciting and occasionally challenging. I love it!
Before that I was very successful as an independent IT consultant and worked on projects for various companies such as BMW, Porsche, Esprit, Ferrero, mobilcom, zooplus, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants etc. – in the course of this work I developed mobile websites, e-commerce systems, hybrid applications and various other software.
Because a healthy work-life-balance is more important to me than a mountain of money in the bank account without time to spend it, I decided a few years ago to work as an employee again. Fortunately, at my current employer there is enough space and development opportunities for personalities like me – I love my job!
In the course of time I have been certified in several areas. The most important certificates are listed below…
- SAFe 5 Government Practitioner
- SAFe 5 Agilist
- SAFe 4 Agilist
- Professional Scrum Master
- Linux Security
- RedHat Certified Technican
- Oracle Application Server 10g Administration
- Specification of real-time systems with the UML
- Multimedia Professional
Let’s start with something strange… With my almost biblical age, I recently started studying business informatics. In the remaining free time I like to spend time in the mountains, in my small home studio, on my bike and of course with friends. I also like to cook and to travel – even if the 2020/2021 pandemic COVID-19 means that I have to take a break for the latter.
I’m interested in history, technology and politics, love gadgets and write (really scary much) articles on different platforms – sometimes for myself, sometimes for larger audiences.
