Professional Business Analyst and Instructor
Having worked as a business analyst in both a major consultancy and an investment bank, I always found myself confronted with both various and complex problem sets and challenging client demands. The rapid development of technology and business requirements forces everyone to constantly adapt and to continue learning.
Being an early adopter of new and quickly evolving tools, I always enjoyed both learning these tools and passing on my knowledge to my colleagues and fellow students. 
Since working as a business analyst implies a high affinity to programming, I also enjoy working as a web developer. It’s that combination of self-taught knowledge and its application in a highly competitive consulting environment for various clients which gave me the ability to evaluate solutions from an industry perspective as well as from a learner’s perspective. The latter also allows me to identify the pain points students might hit when learning these tools.
Since I always found it hard to find high quality, understandable and comprehensive learning materials, I decided to create such materials on my own. Together with Maximilian Schwarzmüller I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience on web development and data science to our more than 1.500,000 students.
