I am a Ubuntu developer (core-dev & MOTU) and Debian Developer.

I am born in 1985, live in Berlin, Germany and studying computer engineering at TU Berlin. Apart from being a computer freak I like to play trumpet and cornet. My hand cannot only click on mouse buttons but also can fold small Origami stars. I have been learning to program since I was 10 years old and since then I have touched at least 10 program languages. Among them there are Pyhton, C, Java, Assembler (e.g. ARM). If you want to contact me, have a look at the Launchpad site provided above. You probably want to contact me via IRC or email.

My first Ubuntu contact was with 6.06 LTS "Dapper Drake". Since Ubuntu 6.10 "Edgy Eft" I used it as main system. I started diving into packaging after the Packaging Jam in Berlin on 2008-02-06. The first package I worked on was matplotlib 0.91.2 and it finally hit Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy Heron" on 2008-04-15 after 23 days. On 2008-06-16 I joined the 5-A-Day team at the first Berliner Bug Jam. 60 day later I have worked on 147 bugs. On 2009-04-23 I became a Ubuntu Universe Contributor. Since then I touched many packages in Debian and Ubuntu. For a list of packages I care for have a look at my Debian Quality Assurance page. On 2009-09-10 I became finally MOTU and on 2010-03-16 core-dev.


Besides maintaining these package, I work on the ubuntu-sponsors queue and try to keep it empty.
