In private!

A bit about me in private...

I live in Luxembourg and I am a senior consultant and project manager with vast experience in IT/IS/IP (means someone who knows about Information Technology, Information Services, Information Processing, Internet and everything that goes along, simply put > computers). Please consult the page about me in Business. My work I do mainly in the banking-industry.

Amongst others I enjoy fitness-training, music, fast cars and Formula One, sometimes a glass of South African wine, travelling, gardening, a little on martial arts, everything about Ireland and of course Luxembourg.

Even so being a descendant of an Irish family, I have received my schooling primarily in Germany (Bernhausen (now Filderstadt), Kaarst (next to Düsseldorf and Neuss) and Trier). This was due to the fact, that my father Patrick was one of the many emigrants from Ireland. He left Ireland in '45 to join the R.A.F. (the brits Royal Air Force) and ended up in Germany, where he met my mother Roswitha, a German girl whom he got married to.

In the '70s the family moved to Luxembourg. I was jobbing in the UK at that time, trying to get myself training from the R.A.F. Luckily that did not work out and I also came to Luxembourg.

In Luxembourg I met a girl by the name of Marie-Paule. She is responsible for me speaking the Luxembourgish language. Marie-Paule is the solid pole of my life. One of the many reasons I married her a good little while ago.

My Chinese horoscope...

I do not believe in horoscopes, but in the Chinese horoscope I am a boar. When reading the explanation thereof I do (at least partly) recognize myself ;-)

THE BOAR - This is a sign of honesty, simplicity and great fortitude, gallant, sturdy and courageous, a person born in this year will apply himself to an alloted task with all his strenght and you can rely on him to see it through. Outwardly, he may appear rough-hewn and jovial, but scratch the surface and you will find pure gold. The BOAR is bound to be one of the most natural people you could come accress. He will never hit you below the belt. No doubt he will have his fights and differences with others, but he will not carry grudges unless you give him no choice. He doesn't like to add fuel to the fire in a confrontation and will usually let bygones be bygones.

Famous persons born - Ronald Reagan, Julie Andrews, Woody Allen, Chiang Kai-Shek, Alfred Hitchcock.
