I was born 1961 in Zurich, Switzerland, and grew up on the shores of Lake Zurich. As a child, I loved to get to know the flowers and the plants. With my little brother, I spent lots of hours in the top of a beech tree. Sometimes, I got it to sway so that I could jump into the top of the neighboring tree. Because the tree didn't bear any fruit, food and beverages were sent up to us from down below employing a ropeway. From the age of 17, I researched my own nature as well as the human nature with great fascination. Eventually, it became clear to me, that all, which we are, has its origin in a time that has happened long ago. A time, when our ancestors still lived on the trees.
