Sacha Schlegel I was born 6th January 1971. I grew up in Liechtenstein, a very small country in the heart of Europe, between Switzerland and Austria. I got a bachelor in Computer Science from the Fachhochschule Biel, a postgraduate diploma in Computer Science, and a Masters by Research in Computer Science from the Curtin University of Technology in Perth Australia. After school I founded my own company called HavanaWave. After three years in Australia I spent 1/2 year in Bonn, Germany and than one year working in Scottsdale, Arizona, North America at Cyclone Commerce as Software Engineer. Currently I am back in Liechtenstein working for HavanaWave. You can contact me via email at

| £ | AUSTRALIA WE ARE COMMING!
The 2nd February 2001, we left Europe and headed to Australia. We will stay in Australia for 2 years where I will do a masters in Computer Science and Ursula a cambridge first certificate. We are looking forward to this adventure. Why Perth, Australia? The West is the Best. Perth is not only a cool ozzie town no it is also the windiest city in the world. We both like to Windsurf so this the place to go. In December and January 2001/2002 we will head to Geraldton (Coronation Beach) to get real windsurf freaks. I whish my friend Andreas E. could join us but he has his diploma work at the University of Zurich. Maybe in 2002/2003 we can go for the SPEEDLOOP
