Glück [glYk] (German): 1. happiness; 2. good fortune
As a UX thinker doing field studies in customer support at WP Media, I help people to make their websites 🚀-fast with WordPress solutions like WP Rocket and Imagify. I also offer other WordPress-related services such as UX reviews, copywriting, and German localisation.
There are a couple of community events I’ve helped building such as my neighbourhood WordPress meetup in Potsdam and the 2012 and 2013 iterations of WP Camp Berlin, both of which led the German WordPress community to reboot during WordCamp Hamburg in 2014.
I was also honoured to be invited on the first ever WordCamp Europe organiser team, an experience that shifted my mind towards the WordPress.org Community in general and made me become more active on de.wordpress.org as well as with the WordPress.org Polyglots team. (More WordPress contributions on this page.)
I believe “there is something good in this world, Mr. Frodo” and I dare hoping it is of endless power and ever superior intelligence.
Other random facts about myself:
- I eat vegan most of the time and love cooking.
- I was convicted of wood theft in Baden-Wuerttemberg in 1750.
- Someone on the internet apparently thinks I’m “possibly the most amazing person you will ever meet” which, of course, is not for me to comment on.
- I play a pretty ok blues/jazz/soul piano and Hammond organ.

*“No children” in fact is a short-cut, our first-born died hours after birth. We learned we were, by far, not alone with an experience like that, and chose to embrace it. We haven’t become parents a second time, though. When in a conversation I sometimes prefer to take the short-cut and say “no children”, particularly when I feel the rest of the story would complicate things. Regardless of that type of situation, I usually feel comfortable being approached about the topic.
