hey, call me Max

I'm Johannes Maximilian Toball and years old

Having been born and raised in Northern Bavaria

and studying in Passau, I'm now at home in Berlin

I work as freelance software developer,

with a focus on JavaScript back-to front,

and loads of experience all around the stack.

In my freetime I live for music, delve into films&books, take a photo or two and keep myself busy with creative projects combining my individual activities.
