In the early nineties, I met the love of my life; the internet. After chatting with some really shady people on IRC-clients like Pirch32 and later mIRC I discovered HTML-coding and built my very own "homepage". Knowing that there are a couple of good archiving services out there I will not disclose the address - but let's just say that I wasn't very good. Realizing this, I turned to more mainstream and less impressive software like ICQ and Dreamweaver. I played Quakeworld on a dial-up 28.8 kbit modem which almost drove my family mad - needless to say the two-channel ISDN was a blessing (until the bill came).
I dropped the gaming and IT (with the exception of early versions of Counter-Strike) and took an entirely different road for about 10 years before I got back into IT as a tech support employee for an ISP. Realizing that I could no longer control the longing to be around nerds I stayed - but I didn't really find the right people until I joined tretton37. I’m extremely proud to be a part of the family, and I love being able to contribute with my knowledge, passion and dedication to the team.
I am a social guy, playful, yet professional - with a big heart and an analytic mind. I would love to say that I do extreme sports, compete in MMA or arm-wrestle professionally but fact of the matter is; I don't. My superpower is that I make the people around me happy and I am always curious about learning new things and meeting interesting people; which is why I can't wait to talk to you, dear reader!
