Galleries:


 


Born in Düsseldorf, Germany September 14th, 1959
The story is that the summer was unbearable hot and my mother suffered a great lot, the guilt came with birth.
School: 1965 to 1978 Abitur Albert Einstein Gymnasium
Yeah a whole lot of school, can't remember what I learned there, but I was happy to leave.
Chile: 1978 to 1979
Did an internship in a copper mine over there, it was interesting but I was too young and shy to really take advantage of the country and the freedom. Turned out to be an ok time in my memory
Civildienst 1980 to 1982
Yes, I had the privilege of getting in writing from the German Government that I'm unfit to kill and that I'm much better use to society by delivering food to the elderly. And they wanted me for 18 month! I actually had the best time doing that, made a great friend and have some fun stories.
FH Detmold 1983 to 1987
Here I studied Interior Architecture, made good friends and got a sense of myself, learned a lot about design, furniture, architecture and art.
USA 1988 to....
Moved to California's Bay Area January 1988, the best and most important change in my life. Found a job, friends and a life away from the restrictions I believed Germany stood for. Never had any problems to feel right at home in California.
1990, Berkeley, CA: 
 
Bay Window Coverings - my first company for Interior Design.
 
1992 - 2007, Berkeley, CA: 
 
The Magazine - my second company.  Import and retail of modern European furniture.
 
2005 ART:  
Started welding in the fall of 2005.  It became an obsession right away.  Once I found my medium, I finally could start to express what I had learned in the last 25 years in schools, museums, travels, people and in my dreams.  I concentrate on the human body in a modern interpretation of the classic art of sculpture.

2009 Miami: 
 
I moved to Miami in December 2008 to take advantage of the art scene in Florida.
