More than IT consulting...

About Christian

Current Employment:

Expedia Inc. - Expedia Affiliate Network - Partner:Connect

Partner:Connect is a team of consultants with the purpose of helping our affiliates to improve the booking experience for customers.

In my role as Head of Optimisation Strategy, I am working globally on improving the connection of affiliates to the EAN API, their geographical resolution and their content import.

Myself and my team members interact with engineering departmens up to a CTO level in improving technical and content integration, improving searchability and conversion.

Outside of work:

Travel

Working for a travel company comes with some major benefits. Travel becomes easier. There are only a few free weeks during the year, and I spend them usually traveling to one country or the other.

Activity:

One of my most favourite hobbies is rock climbing and I am traveling to different locations to climb indoor and outdoors.

Projects

While working as a technical consultant in my dayjob, sometimes opportunities or ideas come up that either add to this role or are ideas that I am checking if they can be realised:

Markdown WYSIWIG

One of my favourite tools supports only Markdown to format text.
As not everyone is comfortable to write markdown I created this tool that allows rich text editing and returns a copy/paste ready version in Markdown.

IRS (image resize service)

Server based image resizing as a service. Part of the objective for this project was to take any image and resize it on any smaller size. If a larger image than the original image, only the original size will be returned.

Java Battleships

As part of my studies at Birkbeck University I worked on a Java based battle ships program
