I grew up in Germany. After school I learned the pastry trade, then I held for a few years the business of my parents.
That’s how I became familiar with the world of catering and gastronomy.
After 8 years working as a baker, I decided to go to Berlin and resume my studies in the food technology and process technology sector. During this course, I realized several scientific projects abroad.
I then worked for several years as an engineer in Swiss and French companies. In this professional context, I traveled worldwide..
The last two positions I held in the agribusiness industry in Germany were as “R & D Manager” and as “Business Development Officer”.
Then, one day, I made the decision to completely change my life, to follow my heart and to make my real passions my job. I would like to add that I have been practicing tai chi and qi gong for many years.
A few years ago, I studied and practiced Kung-Fu by my Indonesian teacher Bambang’s at the “Kung Fu Akademie” in Berlin.
Another hobby are the horses. I myself broke up and trained our thoroughbreds Arabs. In addition, I am a member of the EAHAE (Horse Assisted Education) International Association, a technique of initial and ongoing horse training for executives, entrepreneurs, groups and individuals, which we also teach.
I moved to French in 2016 with my familie (my wife and 3 children). Here we bought a house and I started up my small business. That means I do rent accomodations like jurtes, rooms, appartments amd also over activities and seminars for: Tai Chi, Qi Gong, sword, tango, chinese medecins, plants,
