My interests lay in new work cultures, design, business and philosophy. Husband of one, father of two, I live and work around Zürich, spending my day with my family, large amounts of Cappuccinos, reading books (currently this and this and this), and listening to my amateuresque vinyl collection, preferably from weirdpunk bands (but this or this or this does it too).
At Evernote, I'm leading the EMEA Sales and Customer Success teams out of the European headquarters in Zürich. I had the pleasure working with companies like Freitag, Publicis, Uber or the UK Government, increasing their productivity across teams.
I'm a Universitylecturer on "Productivity", "new way of working" and "Design" at various Universities in Switzerland and i'm a Juror for the Mobile Business Award of the University of St. Gallen. Member andthink tank contributor of the Swiss British Chamber of Commerce (Public Affairs Commission).
In 2017 I Co-founded the fashion brandPin Friends, creating small pieces of art, allowing people to express themselves. We introduce customers to exclusive collaborations with some of the most relevant independent artists and creatives from Switzerland and Germany.
Since 2015, I'm writing and curating news and articles on the topic of productivity and "new work culture" for Scope. A Swiss News Startup.
While studying Design at the University for the Creative Art, I run my own Digital Magazine (fancy for blog) on design, culture, trends and how to stay productive, over at Volt & Gestalt(currently being re-designed) - The Newsletter got featured by Mailchimp as outstanding and “Out of the Ordinary”.

In 1939, an astonishing new machine debuted at the New York World’s Fair. It was called the “Voder” and looked sort of like a futuristic church organ. An operator placed her hands on a keyboard and then played something the world had never heard before. A synthesized voice.
On November 24, 2015, the Wu-Tang Clan sold its most recent album, "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin," through an online auction house. It would exist as only one copy—as an LP. This album would have only one owner, and thus, perhaps, only one listener.
Susie McKinnon is happily married, working full time and living a good life. But one thing sets her apart. She has no memories of her life. She hasn't lost her memory; She’s never been able to have one.
