After joining Elastic as a Consulting Engineer where I specialized in Search Consulting in 2018 for slightly over a year I decided to go back to freelancing. I’m very grateful for all that I have learned there and all the experience I gained while helping some big companies to tune their search engine performance and quality.

Before that I worked as a freelancer for 4 years working remotely and onsite for various small and medium sized companies as a Textmining Engineer and Consultant. My first version of Elasticsearch was 0.97. Elasticsearch is my favorite software of all times. Very well made, fast, flexible and highly customizable.

I have a background in NLP. I studied Computational Linguistics at the University of Heidelberg. I was always interested in gaining insights from big textual data collections.
