I'm a 41 year old freelancer IT Consultant based in Vienna, Austria (Europe, no kangaroos ;) )
I'm running my business since 1997 although I am working in the IT landscape since 1992 and provide mainly two types of consulting and/or IT services to my clients.
a) I'm hired in mid-term to long-running projects as Java Enterprise Architect, Solution Architect, System Engineer, Mentor, Consultant, Analyst, Designer or Developer.
b) I'm doing small to mid size turn-key (mainly web) projects for small to medium companies. Here i'm specialised in database applications, booking systems, rental systems, e-shops, ...
I'm normally neither do Web-Site Projects like CMS (Typo3, Joomla) nor Homepages (Design, Static Content).
Over the years I've worked in several industries (Telco, Finance, Pharma, Government, Automotive), so I have gained a relativly wide spread IT knowledge. Being a generalist my mission is to provide a solution to my clients that fits their budgets as well their expectations in terms of functionality.
The audience of my companies web site will be diverse:
a) recruiters in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and hopefully UK, maybe US
(so multilingual support, at least german/english is highly appreciated)
b) my former and current customers
c) IT press
d) partner companies
Mainly I intend to use the website as a digital business card, online reference (showreel), electronic CV, marketing channel (Google, SEO)
and as a low frequent channel of technical information (articles)
I do have a kind of existing CI for print (business cards, receipts, ...)
all available resources are also provided online on
