About Me ✨

Welcome to my portfolio page! I am an enthusiastic web developer based in Bonn, with a wealth of experience in various fields. My journey as a web developer began when I decided to create a website for my music label. Fast forward four years later, and I have successfully launched multiple websites and worked as a software developer for a reputable Bonn-based company. On this page, I am excited to share some insights into my work with you.

Skills 💪

An old fashioned light bulb is glowing

One of my greatest strengths is my ability to learn new technologies and concepts quickly and independently. After teaching myself the fundamentals of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL, I completed a one-year certificate course to become a professional web developer. During the course, I gained expertise in React, Next.js, Node.js, and MongoDB. Later, I worked as a software developer and honed my skills with C#, .NET, ASP.NET and Blazor WASM. In my free time I created a self-hosted blog using Nginx, Next.js 13 ISR (TypeScript), Node.js, and MongoDB. Currently I extend my Cyber Security skills by learning everything about Pentesting.
