Hi there,

I am Alex, a Berlin based tech entrepreneur. At age 12, I started programming and basically never stopped ever since. My services as a software consultant are offered under my alias "webartifex".

I used to be the Chief Technology Officer for Artace, Inc., a big data startup in the art space based in New York and Berlin. The mission is to make all contemporary art accessible to everyone!

Currently, I am pursuing a PhD thesis at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management in the field of vehicle routing and related optimization techniques.

This is aligned with my vision of reducing the CO2 emissions caused by timber trucks in Germany by 30-40%. I call this endevour "42timber". This way, my dream is to take my family's core business "Interforst" to the next level.

Feel free to get in touch with me!
