Changing the way companies ship their end product to customers.

I am a seasoned Engineering Manager specializing in software development life cycle, agile quality assurance, and test automation. With over a decade of experience across multinational and matrix organizations, including roles at IBM, LogMeIn, and 1&1, I have honed my expertise in driving high-quality product delivery and enhancing customer satisfaction. At Thomann Music, I continue to lead and mentor a team of Quality Engineers, defining quality assurance strategies that underscore the importance of quality across the organization. With a Master's in International Business IT Consulting and accolades such as the Best International Student of 2019 by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), my career is a testament to my dedication to quality, innovation, and leadership in the tech industry.



I approach every project with unwavering enthusiasm and dedication. Believing firmly that passion is the backbone of innovation, I never settle for mediocrity, ensuring every task is pursued with full-hearted commitment.


My work ethic is built on the foundation of accuracy and meticulous attention to detail. I stand by the principle that excellence is achieved not when there's nothing more to add, but when there's nothing left to take away.


I thrive on challenging the status quo and am not hesitant to venture into tough territories. Asking the hard questions and engaging in critical conversations are part of my repertoire, driven by a quest for truth and continuous improvement.

Julian has been our ace card for a while now – he's dependable, always delivering his work on time. The quality of his work is of such high standard that we often don't need too many layers of edits to get the first draft into the published version. He helps us cover meaningful stories with a distinct voice, while also working as a team player. If you're looking for a quality writer, Julian's one I'd vouch for.

Martha Smith

Julian is one of those writers who are able to distinguish their own voice throughout any piece of work, without losing the soul of the publication itself. He's able to pick up on some of the finer nuances of the political climate and express them in words that are easy to comprehend and digest by many audiences. He's a delight to work with, and such a nice person, too.
