Hey, I'm Marco Pennekamp
I'm an entrepreneur, software engineer and musician. I work on my own projects full-time.
As an entrepreneur, I am currently involved with two projects. Kaynef is a new fashion brand that sells accessories crafted for cyclists. Our first product is a men's bracelet made from bicycle tires. Wordpace is an English vocabulary learning tool for writers and readers. Focus on the words you need and stop learning from lists. With Wordpace, you simply select your vocabulary from a hassle-free dictionary.
As a musician, I play bass in a rock band called Among Those People. I am very fond of our composition process, which involves every member of the band and has lead to some very interesting songs. With my bass, I strive to create music, not just basslines. We are currently working on our first album.
In 2017, I acquired a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the Technical University of Dortmund. My Bachelor's thesis was in the field of software synthesis. It explored automata simulation during type inhabitation. I deeply appreciate the formal methods, proofs and structures in Computer Science. Being able to utilise results from Computer Science research can be a great boon for any software engineer.
