passionate entrepreneur, kitesurfer, athlet, traveling the world and looking for the next adventure.
As a passionate tech entrepreneur, free spirit and kitesurfer, I am driven by my curiosity, the urge to learn, adventure and create new things. In my childhood I started building computers and software, today I build and invest companies.
I founded my first company chatworld, one of the first German whitelabel chat systems, which is still used by brands such as RTL, Telekom, Sports and fussball.de, in 1996 at the age of 16. At that time I also discovered my talent for recognising and improving potential in existing things.
After setting up a think tank for young talent together with the NewMedia agency Elephant Seven (now Publicis Pixelpark) in 1998, I founded checkdomain in 2000. Over the last 18 years, checkdomain developed into one of the leading domain and web hosting providers in Germany and was acquired by the Dogado Group (Triton) in 2019.
I am currently working on technologies such as artificial intelligence, ecological change and the challenge of living this in a liveable harmony between technology, nature and people.
In a time that is becoming ever faster and more artificial, I would like to bring more mindfulness and relaxation into people's everyday lives with the meditation app "breathe".
checkdomain offers domains, websites, emails and online marketing. Founded in 2000, checkdomain has become one of the leading providers in Germany. In 2019, checkdomain was acquired by the Dogado Group / Triton.
