Hi, I’m Alex, tech enthusiast, and I work as a senior IT specialist for Client/Server-Computing in a medical institue at daytime, being in the IT segment for more than ten years now. I am trying to build and run my own small indie game studio “Firesplash Entertainment” rest of the time.

Besides that I am a person just like you. Probably a bit more crazy though.

This blog is about everything (of interest) in my life. Being it business and private stories, tech solutions or experience reports.

Facts About Me

ME in person

In my “young times” (I am not too old yet, I think) I found my passion for technology, especially computers. Still in school I already ran linux servers and created an own browser game with friends.

Later I absolved an apprenticeship as an IT specialist for “systems integration”. I worked for two companies in first and second level support for a few years then.

Around 2016 I started specializing my knowledge on Client/Server Operation/Administration and End User Computing

Further I founded my own small business where I am creating games and providing IT-Services to a few customers.

My Approach and Requirements

At my current workplace I am well-known as a problem-solver as well as system architect.
I created a Three-Tier Citrix VAD rollout strategy, an IGEL-based Mobility concept, a Portal for employees, and many more projects from scratch, keeping the total cost in critical sight.

I can create best practice or cost-effective “Outside-The-Box” solutions tailored to your needs.

I love to deep-dive into systems, troubleshoot things where other people give up and find a solution to issues and questions where other’s give up on. This might be a system solution or even a self-coded tool or script – depending the requirements.

Just keep me away from disruptions while I am “braining” (the word I use for deep-diving into issues or systems). We’re living in a modern world – If you want me, home office (or any kind of regular teleworking) should not be a No-Go.

I am also available for projects as an extern – as long as it is compatible with my working hours.
