About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Our own worlds are so different, however we all live in the same one.

ABOUT ME

I am a open minded guy with demand for relationships, friendships in general.

My studies began in Vienna at the Vienna University of Economics, my special fields are European integration, EU, business informatics, production. I am glad to be a part of many civil organizations and make our business on behalf of this, it is often voluntary work, lot of energy. I was working as EU Presidency officer for European Youth Forum in Brussels and in Budapest 2010-2011. I was also leading the structured dialogue with young people process in Hungary, voluntary. run best practice projects, also voluntary: www.elnoksegtudositoi.eu Reporters of the Presidency, around 25 young students reporting also partly in English www.elnoksegemberei.eu Staff of the Presidency EU Council simulation

2012-2014 I was contributing to the success of the international No Hate Speech Movement of the Council of Europe fighting discrimination, hate online www.nohatespeechmovement.org and offline. I was trainer and facilitator, project manager and also active in online content supporting and campaigning in general (many conferences, worskhops all around Europe).

Since 2014 I am living in Switzerland, working in sales and marketing in canton St.Gallen. As I am sharing a small appartement, so I can not host unfortunately.

I like to travel, who doesn't? But to find the right time and funds is the harder challenge.

If I can be used for others, when I have the time needed and use others efforts, when possible make our little world more comfortable and I think it is a good thing, everybody can do a little bit for it.

PHILOSOPHY

I hope I can be useful in my life both in small community and wider. queer, lgbt, gay, schwul
