I was born in Germany in 1956. During my teenage years my parents decided to emigrate to America and make San Diego our home. After proudly graduating from San Diego High School in 1974 I continued on to San Diego State. Through my love of working with my hands and an appreciation for art I apprenticed with a local German Painter where I learned my craft. I then started my own business in 1977.
I have always been a member of the "German American Societies of San Diego" (a fun social club), of which I was also president for two years. This is where I met my lovely wife Petra. Most people agree that we have the best "original" Oktoberfest in San Diego. One of my biggest passions is the game of Soccer. I played many years including High School and San Diego county teams, and still enjoy kicking the ball around a bit today.
I pride myself on quality, honesty and integrity. A strong belief in God, the love of my wife and my friends are the most important things in my life.
