I am known to many as HK, an entrepreneur, athlete, a music aficionado, globetrotter, food lover with a pure passion for technology, philanthropy and social media. I absolutely love a good challenge, combining these roles throughout my lifetime has resulted in an epic and challenging journey. I identify myself with a quote from Vince Lombardi -
I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.
I come from an Austro-American background, growing up trilingual and always seeking to fulfill my desires by doing what I love, with near perfectionism and passion. From a young age I have always been actively involved in a multitude of sports from soccer to american football, martial arts (Black Belt 1 Dan – Shodon) to Track and Field. At the age of 14, I completed my first of many marathons (42.195km) and shortly thereafter my first ironman triathlon. I have competed in many sporting events including the World Junior Championships in Athletics and have held several Austrian records in the 200m, 400m and 1500m distances.
At the age of 17, after graduating high school before my mandatory military service I began my first company, SilverStar, traveling to the likes of Australia and Singapore. Shortly thereafter founding the K Lifestyle Group, a multimedia and entertainment company. Through my passion to sports I began developing the KFit concept, a fitness routine aimed at increasing strength, agility, endurance and mind used at health clubs, personal coaching and numerous athletic teams. At 18, I began coaching basketball (including my younger brother, a top former Austrian talent) and soccer teams and provide guidance and mentoring.
I enjoy traveling in my spare time, writing and producing music, having started Twenty Two Entertainment, performing in front of packed crowds of thousands at festivals and concerts. I absolutely love all types of culinary cousins, and began developing a passion for technology and philanthropy at an early age.
I hold a Bachelors in Business Administration along side numerous certifications ranging from Certified Personal Trainer to Project Management, continuously seeking knowledge through personal development. I have spoken and continue to speak in front of packed crowds, university students and in the business environment.
I am currently engaged in the corporate environment as a manager of an operational team, aside from reestablishing my own brand, the K Lifestyle Group, enlisted in advancing my education through a Master of Science in Nutrition and Exercise. I have had several articles published and plan to release my debut book in 2013 and as most online writers I harbor the dream of becoming an A-list blogger.
Life to me is a mindset, soak in your surroundings the best you can and never stop engaging. I believe that life is a fine balance between ambition, working hard and spending time on the important things without having to compromise on ones goals.
I cofounded our parent company The K Lifestyle Group along with my brother in 2005, founded fitness and health platform mykfit.com, started a non-profit to better mankind at The Verendus Foundation, began a record label way back when called 22ent, created a social network for expats at nexcamp, and engaged myself in a fashion label alongside my significant other named SZANTO. Along side that I love running this blog.
