I was born in May 1964 under Gemini in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.
In 1988 I earned my diploma at the Technical University of Applied Sciences and Arts Berlin (now Beuth University of Applied Sciences and Arts) as a mechanical engineer specializing in production.
I have been married since 25 years and am the father of two full-grown daughters.
My free time is mostly spent on my bicycle.
I love riding my racing bike in Mallorca to the opening of the training season as well as taking my mountain bike to the Dolomites of Eastern Tyrol or to the Grunewald in Berlin in between seasons.
Other passions of mine are motorcycles as well as collecting antique men’s wrist watches.
