Marketing & Writing
Writing is my passion. I've been a games journalist for the last 10 years and am currently working as a Marketing Guy for our own Podcast Hosting Service.
Since my first website at age 12, I've come a long way. Now's the time for awesome projects running on Ruby on Rails. I'm self-taught and learning constantly every day.
What do you do if your face is not YouTube Material? You start a Podcast! I'm currently hosting and producing three Podcasts, number four is on its way!
Marketing & Writing
"Writing is hard," they say. Or is it? I would argue, that good writing is hard. It takes passion, clear thoughts and motivation. I'm thankful nature gave me the first two. The latter derives from the things I write about.
As a passionate gamer, it was always a dream for me to write about games. I grew up with computer magazines like Power Play and Gamestar. In 2009, I found my writers corner at Xboxdynasty and have written more that 430 game reviews ever since.
My personal highlights include the yearly gamescom events in Cologne, my trip to E3 2012 in Los Angeles and all those great dev talks I've had over the years.
However, a man has to eat! And so I'm currently combining my passion for writing with my marketing skills to form a kick-ass Tag Team for our Podcast Hosting Service LetsCast.fm. Drop by and say hi! 👋
Want to know how old I am? I've coded my first website in Notepad and viewed it in Netscape Navigator. It had a table layout, a fancy counter and box shadows drawn with Paint, because CSS wasn't even invented back then.
Yeah, even this website runs on Ruby, thanks to the awesome Bridgetown Jamstack static site generator. Check it out, it's relatively new, but fueled with passion and a love for Ruby. And so here I am. A self-taught Web Developer working on lots of awesome projects.
My history with audio content goes way back. When I was 6 years old, I created my own "radio shows" by overriding my father's music tapes. With the rise of the internet, I moved to web radio, hosting my own "show" on the German Indie Film Radio. Then came podcasting – and I fell in love with audio once again.
After being an active podcast listener since 2009, I decided to tip my toes into the medium as well. First as a guest (on the awesome German Gaming Podcast Insert Moin for example), then as a team member at Headlock - The Pro Wrestling Podcast.
