About the author of these pages, Philipp Stiefel
Born and grown up near Kassel, Germany, I moved to Frankfurt (Main) in 1996 to study pharmacy at university. There I started to job at a dialog-marketing-agency, to earn some money on the side.
While that was meant as a side job at first, it pretty quickly turned out that pharmacy was not my calling in life. So, I took the appropriate action, left university, and started (and later completed) an apprenticeship at that marketing agency.
In addition to my main tasks, I got more and more involved with the Microsoft Access and Oracle database applications used internally at that company. Over time that became my primary focus there and I gained quite a bit of knowledge and experience in this field.
In May 2000 I was awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Title for my contributions to the Microsoft Access Newsgroups. I got re-awarded the MVP-Title for each year until 2006 when I reduced my community contributions due to personal reasons.
In June 2000 I severed ties with the marketing business and started my own small software development consultancy, which I run successfully until today. We focus on developing custom software applications using Microsoft Access, Visual Basic, C#, and database systems such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL.
Over a span of more than 15 years we completed quite a few successful projects for small and mid-sized businesses. Most of our core customers are located in the Frankfurt-Region of Germany, but we do work remotely for some international customers as well.
