Dr. Gerald Madlmayr

Well, this is my blog. I’m currently located in Vienna, running different consulting projects in the field of business technology. When I’m not working I’m at the lake workboarding (in summer) or at the mountains skiing (in winter). Besides chilling around I’d like to go out, I’m interest in architecture and furniture design (I also fancy handcraft in case I have time). I enjoy café and I also like cooking and baking cakes.

Why do I have this blog? Actually it’s some kind of documentation of what here is going on/happend in my life. I’m not planning to devote this blog to a special topic or post thoughts, opinion or intellectual comments here. You will find various things here about my sparetime activities, work as also related news topics, friends and family matters. It gives a sound picture on how I live and what I do. I hope you enjoy my life.
