I am from Solothurn, Switzerland's finest baroque town. It is really a nice place to live and if you travel to Switzerland, it is well worth a visit.
Check it out here

After going to school in Solothurn, I made an aprenticeship as a draftsmen. After that, I went to the HTL in Biel and graduated as a Mechanical Engineer (comparable to an Engineering Manager here in Australia). Just working for a few months, I then went on a trip around the world for 14 months. There, I also experienced the beautiful Australia and the relaxed livestyle here. Coming back to Solothurn, I worked 7 years as IT Manager in Asitrade, Grenchen. Besides that, I also did some contracts on Microsoft Access for several companies.

Migrating here to Australia in late 1999, I decided to choose Brisbane as my new home. Here, I set up my own company off-ice applications , specializing in Microsoft Access, Delphi and Website Hosting and Development (like this site and other services. The first few months, I had a big contract at UNSW in Sydney and frequently flew down.

There I was lucky to meet Dixie who finally made her way to Brisbane. We just got married in October 2002. I (we) both like going out and check out new restaurants, go to the movies and go hiking on weekends.

As former President of the Swiss Club of Queensland Inc., it was a great pleasure and honour to represent our community and fun to help out and organising functions. If anybody has a good idea or want to give a feedback about anything, please let us know.

Since 2014 I have moved back to Switzerland.

That's about it from myself. If you like to get in touch, please give me an email (see below) or call me...
