Professional background

André isn’t from France but likes French desserts. He was born in the deep forests of southern Germany in the late 20th century and loves skiing, science fiction and juice.

Because André has an ever growing urge to make ‘making things’ easier, he offers his enthusiasm as a consultant and founded priorist, a company to help businesses fully leverage their data and software.

In the past, he worked as a leading project manager at a local internet agency and cloud provider. Where he gained experience in leading the design and development process of medium to large scale web sites and applications for both industry and government.

André holds a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Engineering from Albstadt-Sigmaringen University.

Regarding my client projects, I’m happy to provide a detailed profile upon wholehearted request.


You can discuss, argue or bounce with me. But probably the best thing to do, is to simply talk to me. You may choose between English, German or hand signals.
