Euromania Ballhausplatz HPRC 2007

My story

My love for events started in my early teenage years but it was not until 1999 when I started to become serious about it. I met the Crocodile Trophy organiser Gerhard Schoenbacher in Alice Springs Australia just a few days before the world longest and hardest mountain bike race started. Over this fortnight we became friends and I was part of the onsite event team till 2005.

Though my event school was Do&Co, an international event caterer from Vienna. I traveled half of the globe for Formula1 races, tennis tournaments and corporate events. 

After teaching English in Bangkok for one year I was hired from the event marketing agency pi-five to organise the Euromania Roadshow for the EURO 2008 Football Cup in Austria and Switzerland.  

Seven years and hundreds of projects later I moved to Qatar to open and run the Regional Office for Vertikom Germany. After realising projects in Doha for the oranganisers of the Football World Cup 2022 and Qatargas I moved on to Thailand once more to seek a career in Tourismus. 

Before I decided to become a freelancer I worked for different Domestic Management Companies (DMCs) to run their Meeting, Incentive, Convention, Event (MICE) department. 

If time allows I try to squees in other projects. A mission for “Doctors with Borders” in Malawi or producing a multimedia report about the waste issue in the Maldives for the German magazine “Der Spiegel”.
