Leonard Petter

Hello There!

I discovered my passion for coding when I was in high-school by building my own websites and continued to improve ever since. I pursued my studies at the Hasso-Plattner Institut in Potsdam. During my studies I got more insights into the work of a product manager and my interest in entrepreneurship grew constantly with the ambitions to create a product that positively influences the life of many people.

I am a big enthusiast when it comes to any outdoor sport that involves mountains, be it skiing or climbing... I also like to capture my journeys with my camera and try to be as creative as possible. Reach out to me when you want to connect.
