Originally from Germany (first Freiburg and later Frankfurt) i moved to London (UK) as part of my work for Thomson Reuters (or Thomson Financial as it was known back then). Over the years i moved on from Enterprise IT Architecture to Information Security which led me to my current role as Director for Threat & Vulnerability Management.

I managed to squeeze in some time to take up study at the University of East London where i completed my MSc in Information Security & Forensics. After a break i continued academic studies at UeL and I’m currently pursuing a Professional Doctorate in Information Security under the guidance of Dr. Preston.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to help organising the first three Security B-Sides London events and assisted as Secretary for┬áSecurity B-Sides UK Ltd. until 2013 when i had to step down due to other commitments. I continue to be a strong supporter of Security B-Sides of course (and so should you!).

If and when time allows i contribute articles or speak on topics i care about.

Other than this you may occasionally find me at Virgin Active or UP Fitness trying to convince myself that working out is actually fun.
