This is Florian from Hamburg.

I like to create things. As a computer scientist by training, these are mostly digital in nature.

In my professional work, I am interested in product development, computer vision, and the intersection of these two. Working in teams is important to me and I believe in agile values and their applicability to teams of all shapes and forms.

In (what feels like) a previous career, I have been a web developer. This taught me to put the user at the center of every product decision – a helpful reminder when working with technology.

Say hello.
