After graduating from a Higher Technical School (HTL) for Electronics and Telecommunications, I studied Computer Engineering at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien). Following my studies, I worked in the IT and telecommunications industry in the DACH region as a project and software engineer. I also completed a teacher training program at the University of Teacher Education Vienna and taught at a HTL. Since 2012, I have been primarily engaged in the Swiss area as a project and software engineer in the banking and insurance sectors. After further training at the ZHAW Zurich, I have been working for Allianz Technology since 2019.
