About

I am Andreas Emch and passionate about solving various problems on and with the computer. I was born on the 15. January 1987, I grew up close to Solothurn. During my apprenticeship, I moved for seven years to Nyon, where I learned to speak fluently French and English. I’m always looking for new challenges, be it for studies, work or sports.

Starting programming with C/C++ at the age of 13 with my first 3D game, I’m still learning and improving my skills with new applications and various programming languages. To adapt to new problems and find solutions to those is one of my favorite challenges. As a perfectionist, I try to find fast but still maintainable solutions, which paid of so far.

One of the favorite parts of being a software developer for me is that one has to learn new things daily. To learn and study new things is another passion of me, which is the reason why I am currently on my MSc at the ETH.

Since I can remember, I loved doing sports. During my childhood, I tried out many different kinds, but running was always one of my favorite. Seeking for new challenges and an excellent balance to the work and studies, I’m training passionately for long-distance triathlons as the IRONMAN. Doing this kind of sport brings me out into nature, which is relaxing for me.

I am always curious to find new routes and new beautiful spots. Another hobby which makes this possible is to travel around, locally and globally. I can forget about time by looking for a lovely place or a new unique photograph.
