About me

Why the name SONNENREIFE?

(Ripend or ripened in the sun)

What I consider my inner sun has ripened and expanded over the years. I came closer to the light and love in me, the love and the warmth of the real I, and can now express more and more the facets of my authentic being.

During many years I have trained myself in the search of knowledge and know-how, learnt a lot and remembered things I had thought I forgot. The realization of all of this prompted and convinced me to found a private company and work for my own account.

Born June 15th 1962 in Basel/Switzerland I then spent the next eleven years in Nigeria.

Back in Switzerland I have completed my education after the basic school years as follows:
