About Me

I'm an entrepreneur by heart and computer scientist by training (CS graduate ETH Zurich).

 

I co-founded and helped to build multiple startups to multi-million businesses

Currently I'm working on multiple projects at different stages. The industries range from Podcasting (Ehminem) or Tattoos to Crypto to Luxury Goods. Always with a digital edge and technology & data at the core.

 

I also love to share my knowledge. Below are some forms and references where I had the opportunity to do this in the past. I'm always happy to try new formats as well!

Just get in touch if I can support you with anything.

Personally, I do rarely interviews but you can find some selected here:

Things people might not know about me

  • I'm also a food technologist by training, doing my apprenticeship at BINA (Bischofszell Nahrungsmittel AG), where I was part of the front-line workforce and gained first-hand experience in industry. It was an invaluable experience that still has an influence on me to this day.

  • I'm the Worlds 31st best Solitaire player: I wanted to break into the top 50 and then stop playing. I've rarely played a game since.

  • I had various different side-jobs: I distributed newspapers, sold insurances and newspapers as a call center agent, did keyword-stuffing (also known as SEO nowadays) at HolidayCheck and worked on a chicken farm.
