I am born and raised in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany. Went here to school and worked at Bausparkasse Schwäbisch Hall AG as a projekt manager until I get retired.
I started shooting in the early seventies. Firstly, with a 16 mm camera (Kodak) followed by a 8 mm camera (Eumig) then, later with a VHS camera. At the moment I'm using a digital camcorder by Sony. I cut and compose my films with MAGIX Video Deluxe software. I also lecture at the Volkshochschule in Schwäbisch Hall.
Since my retirement in 2008 I lecture at the Volkshochschule Schwäbisch Hall e.V. webdesign and create and manage websites for friends, artists and companies.
I have been a member of the "Radierwerkstatt81 der Volkshochschule Schwäbisch Hall e. V." for more than 25 years. I do etchings in autumn and winter semester.
I was the Drummer in local bands like "Trampers", "Grandpas Pitchfork", "Mcdonalds" and the "Bandys" in the sixties and seventies. That was the time when I learnt to play guitar.
I like travelling and have been in many countries.
