I grew up in Switzerland. I studied 'Woodwind Making and Repairing' in Newark, England from 1983-86. I went back to Switzerland afterwards and set up my own business making baroque flutes working in close collaboration with the Schola Cantorum in Basel(music academy and research institution focusing on early music and historically informed performance)
I fell in love with and married an Australian, moved to Australia 17 years ago and lived here ever since.
We live on a farm where we raise beef cattle and I repair Woodwind Instruments for the local schools and music store.
I love our place on the Nymboida river and also our beach house in Red Rock and enjoy sharing them with other people.
