Where I come from
I live in the south of Germany and that part is called "Franconia". Nuremberg is the city I live and is very famous during the Christmas time.
In 1999 I finished my bachelor degree in mechanical engineering but started working in the IT industry. First job was to dive into the Citrix technology ...and I'm still diving ;-)
How did it started
In 2002 / 2003 I started posting in the the officially Citrix Support Forum where I have already posted thousands of answers (thousands in my own Forum too) and where my alias was and still is CITRIX4GE.
As a response to forum requests I opened this web site and it became very quickly popular for the SBC / Citrix FAQ and the Web Interface modifications. At the moment the volume transfer data is more than 45GB every month.
Later on, I was invited by Citrix to speak at the "Citrix Support & Engineering Institute of technology" - 2004. At BriForum 2005 I had two sessions one of them with Brian Madden & Douglas Brown that I really enjoyed. I have also written several article at BrianMadden.com that have been transferd now to my own site.
2005 Provision Networks announced me as an VIP for thier company. In July 2006 Microsoft awarded me as an Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Terminal Server. In the same month I was also awarded as Citrix Technology Professional (CTP).
I'm a fulltime freelancer for Server-based computing. In my previous compynies I worked as a Senior Specialist IMS, Senior System Engenieer and System Administrator where I was also responsible for a worldwide Exchange system, central backup, and data center virtualization.
