Best diving experience:
My best Tek diving experience so fare was my cave course last November in Florida with Jill Heinerth and Bill Oestreich ( Bird ) at Ginie Springs

Playground:
I like any type of diving, but due the condition at the Lake of Constance, most of my dives are between 3 – 6 Degrees cold water and most of the time is dark.
I love to go diving at Ojamo, after my cave course I would love to explore more mines and caves. I started again last year with an Expedition team and was part of the “ Mission Big Fish” more Expeditions will follow this year in various countries.

Numbers of dives per year:
I do around 100 dives per year.
