Intro

Profile Picture

Hey - you've found my personal landing page - that's great!

So what can you expect to find here? Actually not much - just a little about myself:
who I am, what I do for work, how I spend my spare time and finally a way to get in contact with me.

Who I am

Profile Picture

Your mind is a powerful thing.
When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

To be honest I don't know who I got this quote from but it fits quite well with my thinking. I'm a positive person and also focus on seeing the positive side of other people.

I was born in Graz, Austria but moved to Guatemala with my whole family when I was 8 years old. For sure the time I had spent there until graduadion from high school has influenced my life (hopefully in a positive way :) After a year at Northwood University in Michigan/USA I moved back to Austria where I had studied Telematics.

Already during my study time I had started working in the Aviation industry at ADB Safegate Austria (at that time still known as AviBit) where I still enjoy working today (see my Work page for more details).

Today I'm happily married and have two lovely kids (two boys with lots of energy). If you're also interested in what I do in my spare time check out my Spare time page.

And just in case I haven't mentioned it: I'm a very friendly person and I enjoy eating (lots of) good food :)

Work

Fokker 100 Aircraft

As already mentioned in the Intro I enjoy working in the Aviation business (Air Traffic Control Software - to be more precise) for ADB Safegate Austria (previously knows as AviBit) since many years already. I had started working at ADB Safegate Austria end of 2003 and have had the chance to gain experience in many different roles ranging from software developemnt, project management, product management up to leading the R&D Department.

Today I'm having the main role as a Technical Sales Manager where I support different ADB Safegate offices and meet (potential) customers worldwide. This also means lots of travelling which allows me to see more of this world :)

If you would also be interested in working in the fascinating world of aviation at ADB Safegate just drop me a line.

Since 2017 I'm also self-employed for consultancies and services in the IT sector. My registration details can be found at the WKO.

I do have some other passions besides aviation, travelling and software but that you can find out on my Spare time page.

Spare Time

Blue spotted ray Fabian diving

As you might already guess from the pictures my biggest passion is being at (or below) the sea. Unfortunately I don't get too many chances but every time I do, I absorb every minute of it. The picture to the left shows the first free-diving experiences of my younger son. I personally love snorkling, diving, free-diving or just inhaling the smell of the sea.

Profile Picture with Camera

Another thing which I really enjoy is photography. Be it portraits, nature, travel, underwater - you name it - this is often a very nice balance to work and also facilitates creativity. At home I have set up my own photo studio but unfortunately only find little time at the moment to make use of it. If you would like to get a glance of my photographic work you might want to check out my Photography Portfolio. I'll try to publish new pictures there every now and then.

Travel

A great enabler for the two items listed above is travelling. Be it on my business trips or when travelling with my family, it's always a great experience getting to know new places and cultures. I have planned to set up a website in the future for sharing my travel experiences and passing on various travel tips but this will still take some time.

Tennis

When I was still young(er) I had earned my pocket money as a tennis instructor. Nowadays it's a pure hobby to be shared with friends and family and sometimes competing on local competitions which encourages me to keep up a certain level.
You can also easily convince me to participate at many other kinds of (especially ball-based) sports, like volleyball (which I've played for quite long), ping pong, golf, etc.

Animals of Costa Rica App

A rather new experience is the a joint app development with my brother and my dad for an app called Animals of Costa Rica. Both my dad and my brother are passionate biologists and photographers at the same time. They contribute most of the scientific content and photos while my main focus lies on building the bridge between the end user and an external development company located in Brazil. Check out our App Homepage and Facebook Fan Page if you would like to get more infos on it.

Surfboard

Well, and since I'm always looking for new experiences and challenges I might end up with adding for instance "surfing" to my list of hobbies - but that's not decided yet. Could be anything else as well :)
I'm certainly eager to learn new things whenever time allows.

Contact

Feel free to drop me a line if you like. Please be aware that sometimes it might take longer for me to respond, e.g. when I am on travel on locations with bad or no internet connectivity.
