I love good food, sailing, skiing, music, contemporary art, architecture, reading and writing, amongst others. I play piano, guitar or ukulele when time permits.
I am an Entrepreneur in the software industry, who has studied computer science, and has worked as a programmer, consultant, Chief Technical Officer, Head of Marketing, Product Manager and Business Strategist. I have co-founded Magnolia International which builds an open-source software used by large organizations around the world.
I often travel and have seen enough hotel rooms from the inside to look forward to stay in less artificial surroundings.
I have lived in New York, Los Angeles, Edinburgh and a couple of cities in Germany. In Switzerland since more than 10 years. When traveling alone, I am happy to have inspiring discussions about pretty much any topic imaginable – when with my family, I am obviously more occupied with them.
I try not to worry about things I can't change, and change the things I care about and can actually influence.
You can find more about me when searching for "Boris" and "Magnolia" on the web. I am the dude that shows up in the videos, interviews, articles, blog posts etc. just in case you want to know more about me without actually calling or meeting me in person.
