PHILOSOPHY

I believe that it is our responsibility to move the world forward
not just live in it.

I feel lucky to have spent my formative years in Austria, a country where I was able to pursue a career in the field that I love. I moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago to follow through with an investment opportunity and I got more than I bargained for - in a good way - and now I call Los Angeles home.

I like to make people's lives easier. I see opportunities where other people don't and I build products around that.  We are blessed to live in times akin to the industrial revolution - there is so much change happening which breeds opportunity. We can solve a lot of flaws in society by embracing change and making it better.

ART

When building a business you start with a blank canvas and a vision. You choose your colors, your brushes and you follow your heart. The first brush stroke melts into the canvas and before you know it you have a growing business.

Art opens the mind for new ideas. Finding new artists and collecting their work is a passion of mine.

CONSULTING

As an investor and entrepreneur who built and sold several multi million dollar businesses I understand what's needed to start and grow a company.

From my experience I derived a consulting process for startups:

Phase 1

From idea to basic concept.

PHASE 2

From concept to action plan.

PHASE 3

From plan to minimum viable product.

GIVING BACK

Los Angeles is more than just my home, it offers lots of opportunities to give back. I volunteer with an organization called Coupla Guys & Gals Give Back, by rolling up my sleeves and offering direct assistance to those in need and by providing tech advice to the CEO and board.

When you get you should give.
