Got interested in programming at the age of 12, because I wanted to make my own games. Disappointed (because no "exe-files" came out) and overcharged by the Java book obtained by my father I turned to the more appealing HTML and CSS. Three years later I discovered PureBasic and took a second try on programming and succeeded. Since then I toyed around with many different things like C, Vala and OpenGL worked my way up to conventional technologies like .NET and PHP, turning my hobby into occupation. Currently I am getting into Cocoa on OS X in my free time and write modules for a friend's PrestaShop. I also like to spend time being creative in other ways like music or graphics.
The first tiny steps in something new are sometimes difficult but after I got a grip on it I can learn much and fast.
