About me & my work:

I was the kind of kid for whom the entire Wonderworld ride had to be stopped because it was too boring and I wanted to get off. School was no better. At university I took a year off to produce my first product and sold 13000 units successfully. I travelled the world, climbed 5000 metre passes in the Andes, Bhutan and China, drove my old 1952 Vanguard ute across Australia, slept in my swag under the open sky and swam on the beaches of Cape Leveque, Copacabana, the Andeman Islands and Greece where I love sailing the Ionian sea. In my heart of hearts I am a racing car driver, have a moderate shoe fixation, am still enamoured with my Atomic coffee machine and have a thing for Manufactum, my favourite shop in my native Munich. I recently completed my PhD in Design and live with my wife, best friend and muse on the top of the Blue Mountains; where above all I try to take the time to smell the roses - the hardest task!
