Finally, I decided to make a profession of what I had learned over the years. At first I was reluctant, because I never had a job before that I actually loved and didn't want to make my precious hobby a boring job like any other. Needless to say I was wrong and making my hobby a job was probably the best decision of my life, so far. In May 2013 I started working as a screen designer for a Berlin-based start-up to co-design an iPhone app. Unfortunately, as it is the fate of most start-ups developing new concepts, the product seemed to be too radical of a change to many users and the app eventually stopped existing. But for me the way I decided to go branched into another world I always wanted to be a part of.
Since early 2014 I've been working as a freelance front-end developer for different clients, agencies, start-ups, small businesses and helped building many interesting projects. Freelance work is most exciting to me. While I've been working with all the different people, companies and technologies I've learned new things constantly, which I consider both the most intriguing and important part of my job.
