Vincent's tech blog

Hello there!

I'm Vincent, a computer science student and musician from Germany!

If you'd like to find out more about me, please take a look at my social media and feel free to contact me.

About me

My name is Vincent Stollenwerk and I'm currently finishing my bachelor's degree in Computer Science at the TU Darmstadt. Besides my studies, I work as a software developer at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. In general, I'm a highly curious person and always eager to learn. I love to learn about new technologies and try them out in my side projects.

Music

In my free time, I love to play and listen to music. For as long as I remember, I've been studying to play the piano at the Peter Cornelius Conservatory Mainz (PCK). The PCK is also where I'm learning the tuba, which I started at the age of 10.
For me, the rather orchestral and social way I play the tuba, and the comparatively soloistic nature of the piano, complement each other perfectly.

I was a member of various youth orchestras and took part in two productions of the Staatstheater Mainz. Currently, I'm part of the TU Darmstadt symphony orchestra, my brass quintet MainzlBrass, and Cornelius Brass, the brass ensemble of the PCK.

If you are interested in my playing or have any other questions, always feel free to contact me.
