I'm a self-employed IT consultant and Web Application Developer (mainly PHP) living in the Düsseldorf area, I started my business in 2010 and focus on Intranet business applications and customer-specific needs.
In my spare time I go hiking, biking, swimming or diving, go on photo trips, I love cooking (and also eating ;-) ), would like to see as many countries as possible, especially with just a backpack and people I meet on the trip.
SO has helped me in quite a few cases, the community feedback and input to questions is totally beyond price and it's great to see that community, coordinators and moderators are always striving to make it even better. If time permits I try to give a bit back of what I got from SO. #SOreadytohelp
