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.
