I like to embrace (or invent) new technologies, and make something useful out of them, from concept stage all the way to production and adoption. For the last couple of years, my focus has been on:
- Blockchain Technology
- Quantum Computing
- Cyber- / ExoWarfare
So far worked 25+ years in start-ups, with some short dabbling in Fortune 50 companies for the experience.
Lived 18 years in the USA (1994-2012; in Los Angeles, San Francisco / Silicon Valley, and Dallas), actively participated in the pre-internet ‘geek’ world for the emerging Internet since 1985, and during the Internet boom – in Silicon Valley – when the consumers (the masses) joined for wide-spread adoption by 1994.
Owned a Cray, and love to create new technologies and businesses.
Currently I live in Berlin, Germany:
- Entrepreneur in Residence, Cyber Innovation Hub (KdoCIR), Cyber Command – Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces), BMVg, — and as part of the CIH contributing to:
