Private Life


I was born in 1963 and spent nearly all of my life in my Swabian hometown Böblingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany).

 

I am married to my lovely Austrian wife Maria Luise (*1979) since 2005, and we have two wonderful children: Lukas Hendrik (*Jan. 2013) and Niklas Erik Ansgar (*Jan. 2015).

 

My priorities and goals in life:

Raising my children as firm believers in Roman Catholicism; becoming a better Christian myself; becoming a Catholic apologist; promoting Intelligent Design theory; and living more simply.
