Hi there, I’m Marcus, a senior full stack web developer and system architect from Cologne, Germany.

Ever since I taught myself programming with BASIC and Assembler on a C64 at the age of 12, I’ve been captivated by the topic of programming, and in 1999, I was able to turn my hobby into a profession. Since 1999, I’ve been working as a web developer.

During this time, I have worked on extensive projects based on PHP-Frameworks like Yii2, Symfony and Laravel, as well as implemented several projects using React and Svelte. I have developed over 150 custom WordPress themes and more than 50 WordPress plugins for my clients. I’ve been a Gutenberg fan from the very beginning and love developing custom blocks.

In web development, my specialty is the planning and structuring of extensive web projects with modern PHP.

I live in Cologne-Ehrenfeld with my wife and two children, and I also have interests in AI (mainly ChatGPT and Midjourney), literature (Neal Stephenson, Thomas Pynchon…), comics, physics, philosophy, audio dramas (Die Schwarze Sonne, Drei ???, John Sinclair…) and knowledge management.

All images and graphics are either by me or by Midjourney.
