Welcome to my private homepage!

“.. technically skilled home automation,
computer, multi-room, audio-video &
surround enthusiast .. with
network experience”

In the beginning, there was MUSIC ..

I was influenced at an age of around 15 by a friend who had a serious HiFi system and so I wanted to have one as well. Some part-time jobs after school made it possible that I bought my first speakers, later a turntable and an amplifier – of course, I had a portable radio and cassette player first. I bought my components in a local store which offered me a job later after finishing High School and spending some time in the army.

I am working now since 1993 in the electronics business in various positions: Sales Manager in retail shops, Owner (of a retail shop), Product Manager (a German daughter company of a projector manufacturer based in Italy), Product / Project Manager within distribution companies, International Sales Manager for a manufacturing company. Within these various places, I was not only selling products but also did the calibration of video systems, programming of automation systems and even trained others in various fields. During all this time one thing remained the same: my passion for MUSIC!

It was mid-2017 when I came in contact with Keith Martin (managing director at IsoTek) and we talked about the effect of mains power when it comes to the playback of music or the visual performance of video sources and television screens. I am now back to music as we do demos that include playing back music titles all over the world. These demos easily convince the audiences that there is a positive effect using the award-winning range of IsoTek products within the various, different playback systems at all price ranges.

Thank you for visiting my homepage and reading these lines.
