After graduation I started studying geodesy, broke off studies halfway through and decided to leave Austria. I went to London, worked in pubs, for a national poll company and as a part-time model to pay the rent, before being ordered back to Austria to do the mandatory military service.

After my military service, I went to Cyprus as a member of the United Nations. On my return, I attended and graduated from the College for New Design. After many years as a designer, I finally decided to give sports journalism a go. It has been a dream of mine for quite some time, but I always found excuses not to go for it.

After playing and coaching team sports (basketball and volleyball) for nearly three decades, I still love competing as well as watching and analysing games.

I have started an 18-month education for mechatronics in March 2014 and in September decided to go on hiatus from my Featured Columnist position in order to focus on studies for the time being.
