portait of Patrick Heneise

Hi! I'm Patrick.

I'm a Software Enginer focusing on web applications and “cloud native” solutions. In 1990 I started gaming on x386 PCs and crafted my first “website” around 1996. Since then I've worked with dozens of languages, frameworks, databases and stuff long forgotten. I have over 20 years professional experience in software solutions and have helped many people accomplish their projects.

After studing Computer Science in Media (BSc at Furtwangen University in Germany) and Media Technology (MSc at Leiden University in the Netherlands), I lived a few years in Barcelona and co-founded blended.io. Approaching the end of 2017 my wife and I needed a change and we started a new life. We adopted a location independend, nomadic lifestyle.

As an Estonian e-Resident, I founded Zentered.co, a software engineering and consulting firm. Since then, we travelled to a over a dozen countries in Europe and South East Asia.

Due to COVID-19, we've decided to temporarily settle down in Cyprus and moved to a new home near Paphos.
