I have been blogging away on my German blog for many years, mostly to keep my friends and family members up-to-date with my adventures in Seattle. I left Germany in early 1993 to join Microsoft. Fresh out of college, it was a great way to get started in a fun, high energy environment, and it also dropped me smack into the middle of a vibrant music scene in a beautiful, green city with rainy days on end. Luckily, there was no shortage of good coffee in Seattle (that would have been a total dealbreaker otherwise), and I immediately loved this place! I am still here now, the weather has not driven me to Los Angeles yet, but I admit that I think about it sometimes. Since I only write about personal things on my German blog, I decided 2014 was the year to start a more business oriented blog which I will dedicate to my professional passions: software design, art, literature and angel investing. I will share many of the marvelous things I come about and hope to get connected with likeminded souls via this avenue.
