Welcome to Christoph Champ's personal website.
I am a Cloud Engineer, Linux System Administrator, scientific programmer, computational biologist, and web developer.
My interests are wide and I actively pursue ideas. I am training to become a scientist, however, I do not see this as just a future career; I see it as a way of life.
I also have a great number of hobbies and am always adding more.
My love of books runs deep. I try to read for at least an hour every day (books unrelated to my studies).
In my spare time, I create, maintain, and host websites.
I love languages and learning them and I speak a few. However, English is my primary language. As a side note, I prefer British English in speech and writing.
My father, older brother, and I have been trying to set personal records of any kind for many years. These include anything from the most countries visited, the highest mountain climbed, the furthest north or south in latitude, the most timezones visited, etc.
Finally, I have a great group of friends and a great family. I try to promote them in any way I can. Because of this, there will be links to articles and sites showing their work.

"The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion". — Thomas Paine
