I have a BA (with honors) from the University of Iowa (also double majored in Linguistics). I also have a Web Development Professional Certificate from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. I have been developing apps for the iOS platform since 2009. I have also worked on native Android apps, and I have worked on and created several cross-platform hybrid apps using Apache Cordova (or Phonegap) as well as custom hybrid solutions. I am resourceful and self-motivated when finding applicable solutions to programming problems (it's like a fun puzzle...). In the past I always focused on Apple platforms and was an expert on the now antiquated Macintosh Toolbox of the 1990's. I used C/C++ on these old generation Macs and on UNIX boxes while studying computer science (we also used early Java on the workstations). I still have a sweet spot for native objective-c development on iOS. Recent projects have included custom Cordova / Phonegap plugins, applications which make use of bluetooth iBeacons (as well as Gimbal BLE beacons), and in the last year I have worked extensively with Location Services including GPS functionality and Geofences. In the early days of iOS development I worked a lot with audio processing and muti-touch interactions. I never really set out with the intent to become a project manager, but I communicate well and it seems my role in many gigs recently tends to creep in that direction.

My passions are German writing and storytelling.—I translate any type of text from English to German. In my past I studied acting and media design; so I also know all basics about marketing and forms of design. My online writing experience since 2013 includes SEO content and writing reviews about the books and movies I love. I also wrote a movie script in English which I am trying to use for the market. My ambitions go to be a novel writer. That is why I am used to be very accurate—maybe I need a bit more time for my work as most of the other people. About film editing: I studied it in the beginning of this century and never stopped cutting movie material, preferable with Final Cut. The important aspect to engage me is my ability to create the right rhythm for your movie; and I promise to create something important; I do not like redundancy in video clips if it is not necessary. For sound material I like to use WaveLab. I love languages, I read books and see movies in their original language. My English skills become better and better. I am also teaching myself Spanish and Hungarian. At the moment I live partly in Hungary, partly in Germany, Berlin.
