I am Austrian, father of 2, living in Germany with my family. I studied in the UK and in fact grew up in the English schooling system – so I feel somewhat at home in the UK. Buddhist practitioner for the last 27 yrs, and passionate watcher of Fiji Rugby Sevens.
I work mainly in the field of mindfulness. I have two hats (beside my OMC hat). I am Director of the Kalapa Academy, and we work with companies on introducing mindfulness into their leadership teams and organisational life. We combine this with research and we work closely with a number of research institutions on this. In addition, I am also the Director of Schloss Heinsheim, a castle hotel in southern Germany with a mindfulness twist. And naturally, I sit on planes a lot.
