I studied agriculture and worked on farms in Germany, France and Australia, then as an agronomist in Niger, West Africa, focusing on pest control. Later moved to the USA where I started my own landscaping business. I design habitat gardens and have created my own extensive garden for insects (especially wild bees), amphibians, birds etc. I am also an artist creating stone sculptures of fish and other sea creatures, insects and organic forms, see
