I've been passionate about programming ever since I was a kid and realized I could make machines do my bidding. Still to this day I'm amazed that it's possible to make a living doing the thing I enjoy the most. I almost feel sad for those that miss out on the beauty of sitting alone in the dark, late at night, optimizing some piece of code with a nice beer while listening to black/death metal in your headphones. Or the wonderful feeling of working in an agile team alongside other craftsmen, experimenting and constantly improving the way we build awesome software and bring value to our customers.
Over the years I've filled my developer tool box with quite a few tools and techniques that I've picked up along the way. One of my favorite tools is perhaps TDD which I try to utilize as often as I see it fit.
My spare time is mostly spent with my wife and two daughters watching tv series and playing video games. I'm always trying to find outlets for my creativity, whether it's coding, learning new riffs in Rocksmith or building lego with the kids.
