Learn to Code Professor

Madrid, Spain September 2013 / Present

Teaching the learn to code seminar where I introduce business, law, communication, international relations and even architecture students to HTML and CSS so they can build their first website.
Many of these students have terrific startup ideas but are not able to execute them because of a lack in coding skills. Therefore I believe that teaching the...m the very basics will show them that it's not hard to learn and that they can keep on doing so themselves after the seminar and hopefully launch their great ideas.

I am interested in

Skiing

Skiing is for me the most incredible sport. It is a sport where you only focus on perfecting your technique and enjoying nature. You isolate yourself from the world and enjoy speed and fresh air. If you can do it with friends and add the competition factor followed by a nice lunch and/or après-ski with them you get the perfect experience.

I am interested in

Hunting

I love being out there in the nature, especially if it's combined with a nice lunch and cards over wine or drinks.
