I am a freelance software architecture trainer and IT consultant, member of the iSAQB Foundation working group and head of the Train-the-Trainer working group. I contribute actively to the further development of the curriculum for the Foundation Level, am the author of the CPSA-F reference training material for universities and international training providers and co-author of an iSAQB-compliant textbook or the preparation for the certification exam.

For more than 20 years, practical and scientific aspects of software and systems engineering have determined my professional career. After studying computer science at the TU Dresden, I worked as a research assistant and doctoral student at the Heinz Nixdorf Endowed Chair for Multimedia Technology. During this time, I worked on numerous research and industrial projects. Later, I joined the Dresden-based intecsoft group as a software architect, developer and technical project manager. Typical projects dealt with electromobility, document and transaction processing and the digitalization of business processes .

Since 2016, I work as a coach and trainer for software architecture for course participants from a wide range of industries, e.g. automotive suppliers, fintech companies, insurance companies, public authorities, telecommunications and IT service providers. In my training courses, I place particular emphasis on imparting practice-oriented knowledge and skills as well as on the professional exchange between the participants about their experiences in the development of complex IT systems. Ultimately, it’s about enabling teams to deliver great software.
