The IDA software has been basically a one-man
programming project. Therefore, here are a few words about myself and how I got the idea. Of
course, Ekkard and Petra Seidl have been the instigators, as during the past years, they defined what
the programme should do, provided the data structure for stringed instruments, and did much more
with me, step by step. They financed the development, did the Beta-testing, put me in contact with
the right people, and now they are helping with the marketing. The basic concept as well as many
details were planned and developed in countless meetings in Ekkard Seidlís studio.

I was born in 1986 and grew up in the towns of Erlbach and Markneukirchen,
both part of the Vogtland region known as the "musical corner" in Saxony, Germany.
I had a talent for mathematics and logic, and my father ran a computer shop, so computer programming
was a logical thing for me to get into. Even when I was quite young,
I added to my pocket money with Web design projects.
In 2009, I graduated from the University of Applied Sciences Zwickau (WHZ) with a
Bachelor of Science in Computer Sciences, with Systems Development as a major.
Specialised in Java programming, I worked in various industries (arms industry, retail),
and I began to program for Ekkard Seidl on the side in 2011. Although I
did not have much time for IDA, which originally was for Ekkard Seidlís personal needs only, we
soon noticed that the project was interesting for others too. Wanting to have more time for it, and to
grow into an attractive field of work, I became self-employed in 2014 so that I could re-engineer
IDA and make it more generally applicable, and service the needs of many different kinds of users
and make custom alterations as needed.
My interests: music, philosophy, meditation, dance (Argentinian Tango, etc.), hiking. I do not yet play a musical
instrument, but I do own a cello, made by a good friend, which I would like to learn to play soon.
