He was born in cologne, Germany in 1974. Patrick started diving as a young boy of seven years when his father – also an Scuba Instructor – took him with him to explore the beauty of the world below the surface. This was back in 1981.

After working for an credit insurance company for 15 years, where he was responsible to take care of the belongings of the key account customers and to check the creditworthiness of their customers, he decided to make diving his business.

In 2007 he did his IDC Course at Dive-Point-Red Sea in Hurghada, Egypt with his Course Director Matthias Breit and he became an PADI OWSI after passing the IE.
In 2008 and 2009 he worked on a Liveaboard in the Similan Islands, Thailand and the Mergui Archipelo, Burma as an Scuba Instructor, Guide & UW Photographer.

It was back in 2006 when he took the first time a digital housed camera with him for diving and he got hooked immediately. His passion to bring the beauty of the Sea to the people to see how beautiful it is and to create a feeling of sensibility to protect this world is still growing and growing and growing.
