So you want to know more about me? Okay, here some parts of my story:

I was born in 1971 in Herisau, Switzerland. Until I was about 10 years old my parents moved several times to different towns in Switzerland. We ended up in Olten, a small town in the center between Zurich, Bern, Basel, and Luzern.

After having finished my apprenticeship at the swiss railway I went to England for three months to improve my English. Afterwards I started my studies at the Fachhochschule Muttenz in order to get my Bachelor degree.

I began my working career as an IT-Manager at Dihart AG a reaming tool manufacturer there I got my first experience with Windows, Novel, Unix and humans using computers. After 3 years I decided was time to change and see something else.

From August 1998th til 2006 I worked as a System Manager and Support Senior Manager with the IT-Support Group (ISG.EE) at the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.

Since January 2007 I'm working for Oetiker+Partner AG a consultancy company based in Olten. As IT-Systemengineer and Consultant.

After Doris and I had been together since 1990 we finally decided to have a big party and get married. What a great day! We spent our honeymoon in Iceland. I truly recommend visiting the wonderful country, especially in summertime, when the nights are short and the days long.

During the summer of 2002 I had the chance to switch jobs with a guy from Boulder. Great to get some new experience! I was working for three months at the University of Colorado. In my leisure time I had the opportunity to make new friends and to learn more about culture, nature and the American way of life. Following the time at CU Doris and I made a road trip through Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, visiting all the fascinating National Parks.

28th of June 2005 was a big day for me. Our daughter Vianne Sophie came to us at 4:58 am at the Kantonspital Olten. She is healthy and likes to sleep. Now life is different and I enjoying my new family.

5th of Juli 2007 was an other big day for me. Our second daughter Noėlle Julie came to us at 3:28 pm at the Kantonspital Olten.
