Andreas has worked in the media industry for more than seven years and currently serves as spokesperson for the Austrian telecom incumbent, Telekom Austria Group. Andreas has been in the VR/AR for many years and got interested through his engagement in the European e-sports scene. Andreas is not just interested in the entertainment aspects of VR/AR, but its impact on the news industry and its power in becoming the future of communications fascinated him. 

In early 2016 he co-founded the Virtual and Augmented Reality Association Austria together with partners from leading Austrian companies. The VRAA is the biggest VR/AR network in Austria and gained fast traction due to strong partners involved. The association conducted the first VR consumer study in Austria, partnering with the Gallup Institute and organized the biggest VR events in the region. In late 2016, he linked the local association with the global VR/AR Association (VRARA) and made it the official chapter.
