Hi there! I’m Fabian, a lifeaholic chasing waterfalls around the world…
...Why would I stick to the rivers and the lakes that I'm used to? ♪♫♬ I love to take a walk on the wild side of life, experiencing the world and (delving into) the human experience in all its facets. I love to discover places where few dare to go, bringing back stories from far away. Why? To show that we are all not that different. That the world is not a dangerous place and that most people are quite friendly. I try to not be too influenced by dogma and other constraining bullshit, and I prefer living the questions rather than going for the ready-made answers. On the whole, I like to experiment. With work, with travel and with what it means to be human. If you'd like some less metaphysical bla-bla than this, just click around this page and learn more about how I make a living as an entrepreneur and founder of the world’s first nomadic startup, the trips I undertake as an adventurer and what I brag about when I am onstage as a speaker.
I lived in the streets while studying computer science, drove an old Mercedes from Berlin to South Africa, and managed my company from a Land Rover while crossing South America, from Argentina to Colombia. I did a bunch of other things too, but I’m not sure if I should mention them here! Currently I am becoming a freediving instructor with the aim to open a freediving school in Montenegro.
Contracting Malaria in the Congo mysteriously landed me a job in London with a San Francisco software company. I worked 100 hours a week for a couple of years, then founded my own startup. I was instantly successful, professionally and financially – but also bored to tears, and so I decided to run the company from a Land Rover to make things interesting again, and it worked out. If you ask me, “work” does not have to be a place anymore.
