Michael was born in Salzburg and grew up in a nearby village. He graduated from high school with a focus on media design and communication technology. He loved science fiction books, hence he decided to move to Graz to study technical physics to gain more insight into quantum mechanics and help mankind one step closer to the invention of the warp-drive. After finishing his PhD in experimental physics, he went to Australia to work on a medical image analysis project. During his time abroad he also started programming apps for Android and when coming back home to Austria, he joined the BuddyMe team to help facing their future technical challenges.
