A hobbyist photographer, Markus came in touch with Quicktime VR in 1997/1998 through his workplace, a printing office in Germany that went out of business in 2010. After a few tries at self-made panorama images stitched with Photoshop, he bought the Quicktime VR Authoring Studio 1 (as if there ever was another version ;) and has not stopped spinning around his camera since, though the pace of the spinning has slowed down quite a lot after Y2K.
Other hobbies of his include air brush paintings (though he hasn't done anything for at least a decade now), shooting short films with a group of equally odd friends, creating 3D animations and in general things with lots of buttons that go "beep" when pressed, especially computers. Some time after the year 2000, he got rather frustrated with the way IP law is abused to make quick cash, has pretty much given up on publishing stuff on the internet for now and closed down his old panorama images gallery homepage save for a bit of blogging some useless and inconsequential everyday stuff, but still spends more than a fair share of his time online.
As of 2017, he's mostly tinkering with microcontrollers in his spare time but tries to keep on top of things at the WWP, too (though he's oftentimes not especially sucessful at either).
He also thinks it feels strange to write about himself in the third person. :)
