I'm married and have two kids (currently 2 and 4 years old) and a cat. We live just outside Vienna in Austria. I'm the co-founder of the online mind mapping site MindMeister and have been running this business for the last five years. I enjoy travelling, sports and movies, as well as good food and wine. Before moving to Vienna I lived in London and Munich for 8 years. In 2005 my wife and I did a round-the-world trip across 4 continents which was probably the highlight of my travelling career (alongside trekking to Everest Base Camp in 2003). I love books by Bill Bryson, John Irving, Simon Singh and Ross O'Carroll-Kelly (aka Paul Howard), music by U2, Pixies, Stone Roses and Pearl Jam, also classical opera, and some of my favorite movies are Zoolander, Life of Brian, Sideways and Memento.
