I’m born in the German speaking part of Switzerland, but live in the French speaking part for 40 years and retired in 2005 after 50 years of service in different branches of the graphic industry.

My farewell gift was a PC and a Nikon D50 camera, which allowed me to discover the pleasure (and the trouble, the doubts …) of photography.
I love classical music, which is my great passion all times, even if with much regrets, I don’t play it and don’t compose it! I just listen to it, but I open my heart for it, I abandon myself to it, and it’s giving me among the strongest emotions of my life.

I also keep a blog, in French, about –
Classical music precisely.

I’m married and we have two daughters, as well as two granddaughters.
