Expertise from approx. 20 work years as Web/CMS Professional
Since 1998 I have been working as Web Professional in the "Internet". My destinct (web)technophile talent was very helpful to acquire digital knowledge. I am no programmer, but I know to "decode" the specific mindset and language of IT professionals quite well. My clients appreciate my comprehensive cross-sectional knowledge, enabling me to communicate with all participants in the online production line.
As Senior Web Expert and CMS Power User (mainly TYPO3: ~ Certified TYPO3 Integrator) I am familiar with many web technogical backgrounds and a very powerful content management system.
Medial hands-on knowledge from many client projects
The sound proficiency of common operating systems, office applications and web/creativity tools builds the media-specific base of my self-employment. As freelance Web Professional I acquired comprehensive web technological knowledge. In particular, the professional handling of content management systems (mainly TYPO3, CQ4/5/6) has been attracting my autodidactic attention since 2003 making me a highly qualified CMS Power User with a profound IT background (Level: ~ Certified TYPO3 Integrator).
Very manifold clients project requirements, such as

Be passionately digital: Since the early 90's my "analogously" shaped think, knowledge and work patterns have been "digitalized" – and with considerable enthusiasm I tapped the professional opportunities of this transformation. In the beginning in many small web projects, but nowadays in the digital creative industry on highly complex, interconnected platforms of major international market players I collected – and keep on collecting – manifold expertise and turned into a Senior Web Expert on this virtually endless path of digital transformation.
