About me.

I received a university degree in business management (M.B.A.) in Cologne. Since 1995, I have been working with turtles.

Prior to that time my heart had belonged to amphibians, especially to toads and salamanders. I had my first breeding success with Red Footed Tortoises (C. carbonaria).  

I then decided to focus on the North American box turtles, as well as on the Asian forms of the genus Geoemyda and Cuora.

Currently,  I deal in particular with the breeding of South African tortoise species, Homopus, Chersina and Psammobates.  My fascination with these animals continues to grow within me and therefore I would like to bring all my experience in this project.
