I was born in the Austrian city of Graz right in the middle of the fifties
Once in the new millennium, I was employed from 2001 2003 as a workshop manager for the company "Glaser" (Zurich / Winterthur). From 2003 to 2006 I worked as a store manager for "Waffenhaus Schneider", Interlaken (CH), active and responsible for just about everything, from the sophisticated repairs, executing its orders, sales, and the apprentice education.
In 2006 I returned to Austria as a workshop manager at "Steyr-Mannlicher", involved in building the new "Europe Shooting Center Wiener Neustadt" -factory site and service center. Besides that, I was active in advising the sales and development of in-house manufactured products.
In 2010, I ventured once again the path to independence because of my experience, my skills, and my proven track record, I trust myself to a future life as my own master.
