For more than 15 years I feel at home in IT and worked for a variety of interesting customers and projects or to manage them myself. I understand my current position as an IT(SM) System Administrator as a responsible and challenging position, because due to the progressive state of digitalization, IT forms the backbone of modern companies and supports or shapes business processes. Planning and operating a secure, efficient and scalable IT infrastructure is therefore a task that requires experience, responsibility and competence.
The environmental organization One Earth – OneOcean e.V. (oeoo) deals with the protection of the environment, in particular the water and coastal protection. It has set itself the goal of developing and implementing a concept, as water bodies worldwide can be freed from plastic waste, but also oil and pollutants. In the multi-stage concept of the “marine litter cleanup”, plastic waste is collected by special refuse collection vessels and then recycled or converted back into oil. From a ton of plastic waste, approximately 900 liter of oil could be recovered.
During my travels, I was repeatedly confronted with littered rivers and beaches that urgently needed to be addressed. In 2016, I also spent some time volunteering in Cambodia and witnessed the increasing problems and challenges caused by the ongoing littering. When I met Günther and oeoo shortly after, I was inspired by the idea and the concept and joined oeoo as an active member in 2017.
As member and part of oeoo, I am responsible for our global IT infrastructure, take care of our employees and projects in all technical matters and focus on digitalization, “Green IT” and sustainability.
