Thanks to this and my bachelors degree in business mathematics, I have established a broad and yet deep understanding of the analytical, social and technical aspects in terms of data analysis. I have also aquired vast knowledge in specific tools like google analytics, google tag manager, javascript, R, Python and SQL just to name some. Data driven structures can and will bring addvantages in our future, if applied correctly.

personal preferences

I like to do sports . This helps me to free my mind and keep balance. I hit the gym where I can outpower myself and find some quite minutes to let my thoughts float or train with a friend. I also go running or hiking when it fits into the day. Together with my interest in nutrition and the human body it also helps me to stay fit and healthy.

I also Like to fiddle around little projects and problems I encounter on my way. Thereby it is often about tech related tasks like app/web development, programming challenges or ways to improve my day to day life. It is always fun and a great feeling when you are able to solve or improve a existing way to go.

Another important thing for me are my friends. Together we like to travel, play games, go out or do sports and much much more. Sometimes all you need is a place to relax with nice people. Topped with a good drink while you talk about everything under the sun. Well I couldn't think of something better than this!?
