Language: German

German is my native language It is part of my daily work, my private time and I have highly advanced writing and speaking skills

Language: English

English is my first foreign language I use it daily in meetings, speeches, trainings, phone calls and of course e-mail conversations. This lead to the fact, that my writing and oral skills in English are quite well and business-proven.


My first and most important point is my family. I have a wife and two sons and they are the center of my private life. If I have time to do something else I often do some sports (playing floorball) or simply go watching some good icehockey matches in the swiss top league.

One of my private passions are movies and everything around them. I also often read in sci-fi or fantasy books and am trying to write my own book as well...

In addition to this I really have some kind of talent (other people keep saying that) for video cutting & video production and I like discussing about science and politics as well as IT related stuff.
