I started listening to Podcasts in 2013 to fill my 45-minute bicycle commute to and from work. That Podcast was NPR’s TED Radio Hour with Guy Raz. It changed my life; Podcasts redefined the way I explore new topics and learn. Today my library is filled with titles like Radiolab, Planet Money, The Postal Hub, and DW Audio Trainer (trying to improve my German). Born in the States, I moved from the Great Lakes to Australia in my early twenties. Having received my Bachelor of Management and Professional Studies from Southern Cross University, New South Wales, my career in marketing and sales took flight, including stop-overs in the aviation, creative, finance, and software service industries. Ten years later, I left the sunny beaches of Australia to take up a new challenge in Germany. I’m responsible for Marketing and Sales at INFORM’s Logistics Division where I contribute thought-provoking, technology focused discussions to the INFORM and All Things Supply Chain blog. Life isn’t all work either; I’m a father, husband and, as noted, self-confessed podcast addict.
Since reading science fiction novels as a kid (such as Jules Verne or later Philip K. Dick), I was always fascinated by technology and what the future might hold for us. I also enjoyed writing, so the logical consequence was a Magister degree in Technical Writing which I earned at Aachen University in 2008. Since then I have been working at INFORM Software, where I put my knowledge to good use as a marketing manager.
Creating a podcast on technology topics is a long-cherished wish of mine and I hope for many interesting discussions on what all the buzz is about in the tech space.
In 2014, I completed my studies in communication design in the field of film at the FH Aachen and have been self-employed since the end of 2015.
Apart from print and nonprint graphic works and illustrations, my heart beats for film and music and their postproduction.
And that’s exactly what I’m doing here on the podcast. I make everything sound good 😉
