Introduction

I love building Web Applications, User Interfaces & Rapid Prototypes.

Hi, I’m Korbinian. 👋
I’m a Digital Native and freelance Software Engineer focusing on pixel perfect user interfaces, fullstack JavaScript web applications using React and extraordinary user experiences. 👨‍💻
I am a member of two freelance networks, one of which I founded myself.
Also, I am an enthusiast and evangelist of New Work culture.

I live in Munich where I was born and raised. I speak German, English and Spanish fluently. 🇩🇪 🇬🇧 🇪🇸

In my freetime I enjoy playing soccer, golf, biking and going for long walks. ⚽ ⛳ 🚴‍
I’m thrilled by abstract arts. 🎴 I love books: foremost classic literature, philosophy and cyberpunk / science fiction. 📚 I like to apply critical thinking methodologies and conceptualize beyond existing systems.

I’ve worked with Korbinian for about half a year and was deeply impressed with his passion for web software engineering. He created the nicest frontends for visualising my machine learning algorithms and at the same time didn’t shy away from improving my Python code. When in need for someone who can make your idea shine on the web, I’d recommend Korbinian.
