Coming originally from Bavaria in Germany, I currently live in Stockholm, Sweden and work there as a team lead for a SharePoint consulting team. I started developing for SharePoint 2003 in 2005 and worked as developer and architect ever since. Now I am primarily focusing on SharePoint 2010/2013 solution architecture, development and optimizing development processes. I am Certified SCRUM Master and Product Owner, MCPD and MCITP in SharePoint 2010 and certified in Team Foundation Server. In my “free time” I develop open source tools i.e. the SharePoint Software Factory and SharePoint Solution Deployer to improve and standardize SharePoint development. I also develop a process called SharePoint application lifecycle process (SPALM) which I train at seminars to SharePoint developers. I am a speaker at SharePoint conferences, usergroups and Microsoft roadshows.
