I was born in 1979 in Brühl near Cologne and attended primary and secondary school in Erftstadt. In 1996, I changed to the Karl Schiller Berufskolleg in Brühl for my high school degree. This is where I met Christian.

After school I did a vocational training in the field of IT system integration, and I'm currently working as network administrator for a payment service provider. I live in Oberhausen.
When in school I played canoe polo. In my early 20s I loved to drive motorcycle in the Eifel and now I discovered diving as my hobby. If time permits I also like to go sailing.

Why will I take part in the Baltic Sea Circle?

I believe that the journey through many countries and the people we will meet there, are a great adventure and a huge experience. And in addition to all impressions I can collect for myself as part of the rally we will collect money for charity projects to help others. Thats indeed a great thing.
