My name is Gina; I was born in 1969 in Black Forest. I’m a Neos team member of the Minions team, the Neos Project is my open source family and I take care of the agile structures, the organizational development and as one of the three directors of the Neos Foundation for the CIC. I work and live in Hamburg, Germany as a Change Manager at sitegeist. My son is 28 years old and I studied Meteorology as a single mom. Already during and after my studies I worked at Max Planck Institute for Meteorology where I got in contact with the open source world. From 2003 on I was highly involved in open source and used to be Vice President of the TYPO3 Association. In private life I’m a GUE cave diver and survey a mine called Nuttlar in Germany. I love travelling the world back and forth since I was 16 and like water sports, swimming and kayaking. I’m a diving instructor, instruct divers free of charge and sail & work on a traditional ship called Windsbraut every year.
