Peter´s motto:

Everybody just boils water. Everything exposes its secrets - you just need to look under the hood.

When the first powerful laptops came on the market, I got to know people that were traveling around the world with their laptops in a backpack. They popped up in different timezones, from Hawaii, Sweden, or South Africa. They were the really cool guys, and besides their positive mood, they taught me to forget about "we did it always that way" and instead to try out the new hot stuff. That´s what I always did: I made my degree in Architecture, I helped to build Germany's first CGI movie, later I developed the first version of VersaCommerce, a Shopify clone for the german market. Years later now I am glad to join Keiretsu Forum and to let this old dream become true: I am here on the other side of the planet, far from my other home Germany and together with my wife Carinda we are establishing life on both sides of the globe.
