About Me
About Me

 

There are those who surf the web,
and there are those who make the waves.

 

After two mindless semesters at the university Wolfgang founded the multimedia studio D.A.V.E., where he began to develop online marketing concepts to promote blockbusters movies in Germany in the late 90s. As a consultant he has been developing broadband entertainment applications for Deutsche Telekom. Being involved in several start-up projects with all ups and downs he took a break from the new-economy hype, running an art house cinema and working as a chef.

Since 2009 he is actively involved in building up a vivid local tech community. He is the executive producer of TEDxRheinMain and loves to host hackathons. For over 25years Wolfgang is now helping global brands, enterprises and institutes to see beyond the tellerrand.
