... is a water fetishist. As a paddler and canoe guide, he knows the Wupper by heart. As a passionate improviser and self-taught craftsman, he is constantly looking for new projects and challenges. Canoe building combines many different disciplines and represents for him a combination of water sports and craftsmanship.
As an engineer and scientific diver he is also familiar with the mysterious world under the surface. He uses his skills in CAD to design new canoe and kayak hulls, which are built in the workshop and finally tested on the water.
His interest in photography often makes paddling trips shorter than planned, but from time to time this results in new epic images for the website. He also passes on his passion for craftsmanship and his love of analog photography to children in courses at the Junior-Uni Wuppertal.
