The World of René


Thanks for stopping by! Here are some of the milestones in my life that have made me who I am today:

  1. I was born in Detmold, Germany, on September 19, 1970.

  2. The quiet little town of Lage was my home until age 27.

  3. Drawn to the land of opportunity, I moved to Irvine in sunny southern California in August 1997 (look at the German weather, then you know why...)

  4. After two years of intense training, I became a 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do in July 2005.

  5. On 10/16/05 I got married to my wonderful wife Susan!

  6. A long journey ends just for a new one to begin: On November 30, 2007, I became a US citizen. What’s next, running for Governator!?

  7. Little Luke joined us on January 26, 2009 and is now enriching our life every day. And he’s driving us crazy too.

The latest - I admit it: I’ve gotten lazy and haven’t updated this site in a while. Help me by sending me encouraging and motivating emails... Oh, I almost forgot: I’ve gotten back into software development. Check my my latest projects!

Anyway, take a look at the rest of this site and drop me a line if you like it!

Important words that have guided my life: “You can ask me any question as long as you can handle the answer...” ‘nough said.
