Private Life

I was born in 1963 and spent nearly all of my life in my Swabian hometown Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany).


I am married to my lovely Austrian wife Maria Luise (*1979) since 2005, and we have two wonderful children: Lukas Hendrik (*Jan. 2013) and Niklas Erik Ansgar (*Jan. 2015). In Summer 2018 we moved to our new home in Echsenbach (Lower Austria).
