Even at a young age, Michael was in intensive contact with water and mountain sports. Over the years, a passion developed, first through competitive sports, then to nature. This connection is shown through many sailing regattas, but also ski touring, mountain biking and stand-up paddling.
Michael works as a licensed Lawyer in Munich and has been running his own law firm for almost 25 years. Additionally, he was involved in charitable associations and foundations. His friendship with Peter Christmann sparked his interest in environmental protection and, in particular, the purpose of Orange Ocean.
