Since February 2009 I am staff at OGC and Director European Services.
My work at OGC goes back to September 2006 when I first started to work for the Consortium on a part time basis as - Director Business Development - Europe [1].

End of December 2008 I quit my job at WhereGroup, where I was responsible for business development and marketing. Since mid 1998 I work in GIS and related subjects, I started at that time working for CCGIS. I first got in contact with Free Software in 2002, when CCGIS changed its business model towards Free and Open Source Software. Ever since then, I help explaining, what Free Software is all about and how people can get involved in the Open Source GIS community.

During the last years I was part of the organising team of the german-speaking community meetings (UMN MapServer User Meetings, Mapbender User Meeting, FOSSGIS 2006, FOSSGIS 2007).
