Dr. Christian Menkens

I grew up in St.Wolfgang, Austria, right on the lake Wolfgangsee. The area is a prime tourism destination. In summer the lake is great for all sorts of water sports and in winter the mountains close by provide great winter sports opportunities.

At a young age, I had the chance to work with some of the early computers auch as Commodore/Amiga. This motivated me to move to Salzburg and to attend a technology and electronics focused high school. From there, I continued my technology focused career path which led me to Hagenberg near Linz in Austria, to Toronto in Canada, to Munich in Germany and to Atlanta in the USA. Finally in 2012, I moved to Toronto again where I currently live with my wife and son, and where I work as Chief Technology Officer, Technology Innovation Thought Leader and Chief Solution Architect.
