Digital Nomad with Homebase Berlin
I am an Entrepreneur and Digital Nomad at heart.
Creating awesome stuff as an entrepreneur is my greatest passion and it is exactly this passion that allows me to live the life of my dreams.
Traveling the world and making money is my reality. Meeting new people and experiencing cultures all over the world is just as important as my professional projects. I am not just a passionate ‘Onliner‘ but also an enthusiastic athlete.
I love to keep fit with workouts at the beach or in the gym, am passionate about martial arts and the self defense system Krav Maga, am a rescue diver, and I stick to the Low Carb lifestyle.
As this way of living has brought a lot of vibrancy, abundance and fulfillment to my life I would like to share my positive experiences with others. This is why I founded the DNX – Digital Nomads Conference.
The company Force M is the incubator for all of the projects I start.
DNX GLOBAL is the first conference for digital nomads on the topic of location-independent working and online independence. The DNX movement started all with the German speaking event DNX BERLIN in May 2014.
In summer 2015 I organized the first DNX CAMP in Tarifa, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal.
More DNX CAMPS in Lisbon, Portugal and Jericoacoara, Brazil, Thailand and Mexico will follow.
On DNX CAMP we do coworking, sports and live a healthy life. We have inspirational talks from entrepreneurs and do MasterMinds.
In June 2015 I started the first German speaking jobboard for remote jobs DNX JOBS.
DNX Toolbox is a wiki with tools, tips and resources for future Digital Nomads.
In addition to the DNX world, I offer a variety of services. Online Angels advises businesses in Online Marketing, conducts analyses, develops traffic strategies and deals with their operative implementation as well. Rock my Site develops websites for companies and freelancers with modern designs. Wundersite is your personal website as a freelancer or passive job-searcher.
Travelicia is one of the biggest travel blogs on the topic of Backpacking and Adventure Travel. Trendings is a blog about trends and news in the world of tech.
In addition to my own projects, I am startup investor in companies like Protonet, Userlike, Sugar Shape, Bloomy Days and Blue Patent. I am always in search of exciting investment opportunities in Startups which I can bring onto the right track as Business Angel with my entrepreneurial know-how.
You are investor and interested in my next special project “DNX Island”? Ping me!
After high school and university I took on my first jobs as Online Marketing Manager in big online companies. As time passed, I was entrusted with larger projects, enjoyed growing responsibility and awarded bigger titles.
However, slowly but surely I had this uneasy feeling that all of this won’t make me happy in the long run. I felt increasingly constrained and trapped in a robot-like system that just functions and works for someone else’s dream. In 2012 I therefore decided to quit my job and start my own business.
I founded the company Force M and went on a six month trip through South East Asia together with my girlfriend Felicia.
And suddenly it all came back: I had that sense of freedom again that I had missed so badly and that unleashes all my strength. Creative ideas for new, exciting projects then came bubbling out of me.
One thing led to another and suddenly I was in the middle of my new lifestyle as a Digital Nomad – a lifestyle which I would never trade for anything in the world anymore and makes me look towards the future with 100% anticipation!
