About Carsten

my head

Born in the country of the Krauts, I was brought into this world in Giessen, Hessen, Germany, and lived in Leihgestern (which was later to be combined with Grossen-Linden to become Linden.) I enjoyed all that my surroundings had to offer, but especially the North Sea area. After spending a good 12 years there, my parents and I moved to Porto, Portugal where we lived three more blissful years in culinary and historical fascination. After these few years an opportunity presented itself to move to Canada and thus we packed up and left for the Great White North (over there in the West). I spent some time in Midland and Penetanguishene as well as Waterloo, and ended up here in Barrie, Ontario. I'm currently employed by Arris (which absorbed SeaWell Networks) in Mississauga as a software engineer.
