Good morning blogging world

I’m very happy to be part of a mixed disciplinary group to gain a better understanding of global Higher Education and learn from peers in a firsthand experience.

Since I’ve been a headmaster of a school for vocational training (Höhere Fachschule für Marketing und Kommunikation) and a lecturer at different Swiss Institutions for many years I am quite familiar with Higher Education.

Besides working I love to ski and play with my daughter Julia (5 years old) and my son Nic (3 years old). If I got some time off you will find me on a Tennis Court, my Mountain Bike or on a Kiteboard. Some times I even spend time with my wife Andrea.

Once I manage to upload picture I can even show you my family :-)

 

Hopefully we can explore some of the best trails in Virginia or Switzerland together!
