Introduction

I'm a frontend engineer in Frankfurt working mostly for large corporate clients. I've done this since 1996. My strengths are in frontend technologies like HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, with or without frameworks such as jQuery, and concepts like progressive enhancement, graded browser support, or exceptional performance. Work included development for desktop clients or mobile devices including tablets, and testing with screen readers. My preferred server-side scripting used to be PHP, and I've written a some WordPress plugins, but more recently I prefer Node, Grunt, Backbone and the like.

Otherwise I'm interested in Web accessibility since WCAG 1.0 (1999), I organized an international, interdisciplinary conference on that topic in Frankfurt in 2009, and I often speak at conferences and unconferences about accessibility, HTML5, and anything related. I did several accessibility BITV reviews, also in cooperation with DIAS in Hamburg. I blame twitter for not writing more often in my blog.

I'm an Invited Expert at the W3C HTML Working Group, the W3C HTML Accessibility Task Force, and the W3C eGovernment Interest Group. I also lectured as an assistant professor on web technologies and accessibility at the University of Mainz in the winter of 2010.

In March 2011 I was elected to the City Council of Frankfurt where we formed the ELF Piraten fraction until November 2014, when I joined the DIE LINKE fraction. That's another place where we fight for equal rights, transparency, and participation.
