How would you describe your job to someone who doesn’t work in tech?
We are trying to develop software and platforms aimed at making the logistics process with a freight forwarder as seamless and efficient as possible.

What’s your favorite emerging tech project you’ve worked on?

IoT: I have been able to create [an] amazing user experience in smart homes for myself and others. Automating daily tasks is one of the best ways to get back time and focus on what really matters.

What emerging tech are you most optimistic about? Least? And why?

Autonomous driving. The most expensive parts of logistics right now are final-mile and trucking. Once autonomous vehicles can take over, freight can be moved 24 hours a day at extremely low cost.

What’s the best piece of tech-related media you’ve read/watched/listened to?

My favorite podcast is Pivot from Vox. I love the way they explore business and media, including the tech sector as a cornerstone of their content.

One thing we can’t guess from your LinkedIn profile?

I am a sports nut, especially soccer. I even played at the semi-pro level in Germany before college. I also love to cook, and as a foodie, it’s a passion of mine to play around with different versions of famous foods.
