About Me

Travelling to meet and talk with amazing people. Everybody got a story to tell and I love to listen to all of them.

After I successfully completed my technical education and quickly processed the compulsory Austrian military service, I took off in 2009 to travel the world.
The route brought me over north America through Mexico down to Central America, where I've spent about a half year.
In 2010 I returned back to Vienna, where I'm currently working as Development Assistant at CMC Markets.
In 2014 I married the woman of my dreams, I've met during on my tour through the world 2009 in Central America.
I still got a long list of countries and cultures, I want to check out - so from time to time I dust off my Indiana Jones hat and start another crazy spontaneously trip to meet people all around the world.

More information about my travels can be found on my website:

I'm looking forward to meeting you on the route!

Happy travelling,

It is you, who ...
sings your song,
dances your dance,
lives your life.
