Some short notes on my mineralogical curriculum vitae.
I was born 1964 and started collecting minerals in 1976. My first experiences were very impressive to me. We were a group of 3 friends who went underground in many different, long abandoned mines in Austria almost every weekend, resulting in a large collection within few years.

After those fascinating years as a newby I realized that I had to specialize in my hobby. I bought a stereo microscope, a simple Euromex from the first money I earned. I also started with precise documentation of my fast growing collection and trips. Till nowadays I can find any micro within my collection in 3 minutes which is a goal by over 80.000 specimen.

From 1983-86 I attended the Mining University of Leoben, Styria, but changed to chemistry afterwards. I`m still very thankful for my working duty during that time in the famous lead mine of Bad Bleiberg, Carinthia, (was still active then!) and the salt mine of Altaussee.

My collecting method nowadays is very specific and organized. I like to search for unknown places in Austria; places that never have been researched before by a micromounter (we have hundreds of those here in Austria), mainly historic (long forgotten) mines, especially with rare ore-secundary parageneses. I prefer complete systematical documentation from such places, I`m NOT interested in the best or the most! I`ve published in specific Austrian mineralogical lierature, mainly in Carinthia II and Steirischer Mineralog but also in the Minrec.

Normally I don`t attend any mineral shows as its almost impossible to get specimen I like and don`t have already in my collection. I`m glad that I could get (large) parts of micro collections from other collectors such as Mr.A.Pichler (publisher of the 2 books about mining in Carinthia), Mr.Indra (large micro collection from Carinthia); Mr.J.Metzger, Mr.R.Messner, Mr.Bachler and A.L. (all well known micro collectors from Styria) and Mr.T.Schachinger who gave me parts of his collection as present.

I`m using a Wild-Herbrugg M8 (plan optics) and a M420 (apo zoom) photo macroscope combinded with a Nikon D700 and a stackshot rail system to make pictures for mindat.

I`m working as scientist for the Geological Survey of Austria which means a lot of different tasks like mineralogical research work with mainly SEM-EDS, lot of mining underground tours, ... and finally also as curator of our large (historic) ore deposit collection.

I`m more than thankful to my wife Eve that she accepts my maniac hobby :-)
