As a self-employed business analyst and software architect, he has been supporting corporate groups and medium-sized companies for over 20 years.

He is a founding and board member of DLT Austria (, an association for the sustainable promotion of distributed ledger technologies in Austria. He is also a co-founder of the meetup groups Domain-Driven Design Vienna ( and Microservices, Reactive and Distributed Systems Vienna (, both of which aim to build better software.
