I am a staff software engineer working for Wikimedia Deutschland on various projects including Wikibase, Wikidata and MediaWiki.

I also have a collection of side projects which you can read about on a dedicated page.

I use the username “addshore” in most places, such as GitHub, Twitter & Wikimedia. Hence the name of this site.

Take a look at my latest posts or various projects.

You can also get in touch with me using my contact page.
