I'm an system administrator always endeavoring to make better and more secure solutions and to learn new skills. The focus of my expertise is on databases - especially PostgreSQL. I also have extensive knowledge of information management with SAP Data Services and reporting with Crystal Reports as well as a basic knowledge of a couple of programming languages.
I have my B.A. in musicology and did a nature and wilderness guide's professional examination some years ago. Now I'm enjoing those skills during my spare time playing piano, listening to all kinds of music and wandering in nature with my wife. I also practise meditation and qigong, activities that have proven to be invaluable and have allowed me to see things more clearly both in my work life and elsewhere.
I'm currently studying part-time for a Master's Degree on Databases and Information Retrieval.
