He is a Most Valuable Professional for Visual FoxPro from 1997 to 2011 and a Microsoft Certified Professional. His main profession is consulting work for Visual FoxPro projects of Wizards Builders and for ISYS GmbH as well as publishing the framework Visual Extend.
He was the Editor of Fox Talk 2.0 (effective with the December, 2005 issue) and agreed with Pinnacle Publishing about taking over Fox Talk. But he was editor only for six issues as Eli Journals took over Pinnacle Publishing on 1st of March 2006 and cancelled all contracts (editors, authors, layouters). Talks with Eli Journal to take over Fox Talk failed for various reasons. On 1st of March 2008 he finally took over Fox Talk which was instantly renamed to Fox RockX. See Fox RockX Introduction for more details.
At the DevCon Germany 2007 he received the FoxPro Community Lifetime Achievement Award. Big thanks to the community for that!
He organized the German Roadshow 2005, German Roadshow 2010 and the German Roadshow 2011 as a one day introduction to the hottest topic of the annual DevCon Germany. And because it is real fun to do a roadshow for a product that everyone think is not available anymore...
