About me

I am a software developer and aspiring 3D artist from Augsburg, Germany, and I create apps and games for the Android platform.

During my first internet adventures in 1998, I found the name Kianga in a Swahili dictionary, translated as “burst of sunlight after rain.” It reminded me of the beautiful ending scene from The Lion King, and I chose it as my online nickname. I learned that it’s a female name only after I had used it for almost every online account. It’s nice and short though, and I still like the image.
