I was born as an eight-pounds-weighing bundle of joy in 1989, the year in which my hometown Ligist was hit by the worst flood in decades. My christening took place on April 1st, and therefore was the second most important event on this day (more important: The last Queen of Austria – Karl’s wife Zita – was buried on this date). Before the first episode of “Married with Children” was broadcasted on German TV, I had got rid of my diapers. And as Michael Schumacher lifted his second Formula 1 champion’s cup, I imitated him – with my school cone.
In the year of the predicted apocalypse (1999), I left the elementary school in Ligist and started attendig the grammar school in Köflach. In the year of the big heat wave (2003), I decided that it was time for a change and signed in at the school of economics in Voitsberg. I passed my school-leaving exam with distinction in the year of the global financial crisis (2008). After serving my time at the Austrian Military, I successfully applied as a student at FH JOANNEUM Graz in 2009. As expected, I graduated a few months before the end of the Mayan calendar (2012).
In my new occupation in Munich as an editor in training for CHIP Online, I did not see anything like Armageddon happen. Shortly after the Islamic State was founded in year 2014, I returned to my home country. Back in Austria, I helped the FIXINGGROUP to hit the market for terrace and facade fixing systems in my function of an expert for corporate communication. As the British people voted for the Brexit in 2016, I also decided that it was time for a change. Therefore, I left Ried towards Hagenberg in order to achieve my masters degree at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria. In the winter season 2017/18, I tried to be as successful as Marcel Hirscher: Maybe not in skiing, but at least in research communication for the TIMED Center and in translating for the CLIL-project.
Thanks and kind regards
