Frauke's love affair with computers started by drooling over the sheer awesomeness of a ZX81 when she was a child. Since then she has owned a Commodore 128, an Amiga, an Acorn RISC PC (would you believe it) and an assortment of more mainstream laptops and PCs.
Her love of computers and technology in general led her to obtain two Bachelor's degrees in engineering. She has worked both as a hardware and a software engineer, and has been the managing director of her own IT consultancy, Creative Cats, for 15 years now. She helps small businesses and entrepreneurs with their IT needs, providing hands-on support where needed and training where required.
She loves being asked why she decided to become an engineer.
To be able to go out wearing a red shirt and survive, of course.
