"I am Austrian, born in Vienna, grown up in the place called" Sandleitenhof "and living there since then: 1967. I have one brother and four sisters. The in-laws in my family extend a bit the local flavor
of Sandleitenhof, the city of Vienna and the country of Austria: my brothers and sisters are coming from Romania, Canada / Vietnam, Syria and Germany (my wife) and two more from Austria.
Once upon a time - ages ago in a past millennium - I studied "Engineering in Science" (Physic) from elementary particles up to the scale of cosmological aspects of the laws of nature. I forgot everything about it in the meanwhile. Only basic mathematics I am still capable to do, which in fact currently I am doing, as I am tutoring young refugees from Afghanistan in mathematics. However I left the field of physics: space, matter and time and entered the field of information and communication.
After study-times, when I jumped into the cold water of work-life, I ended up in the industry branch of mobile telecommunications technologies - connecting people (the old slogan of the Finnish-based company Nokia) - since the year 1997, trying to shape a mobile information society.
My personal areas of interest are literature, music and politics. I do like literature and music that much, that I am not only reading and listening but I am also writing short stories and making music myself.
Looking forward to get connected to the folks from Peru :-) ".
