Biography

Andreas is a Freelance Software Engineer at Toptal, where he works for various clients in different industries like Databricks to deliver outstanding web applications.

He started his career in 2011 and developed an ever-growing interest in the web platform and in building websites. Being self-taught, he previously worked for Vitra, the Dominican Ministry of Environment, and Camunda.

His main area of expertise lies within the front end; taming React state, making CSS look pixel-perfect in all browsers, squooshing JSON API data into beautiful UIs, ensuring accessibility, and all that other stuff. However, he is also at home in the back end, as long as it's in JavaScript.

If outside of the matrix, he loves being in nature, taking photos of beautiful locations all around the world. Oh, and he's an okay cook.
