Born in Berlin, but residing in Andalusia, since 2005. After high school, he moved to Almería for a year due to a school exchange, after which, in a way, it was always easier to stay there than to return. After graduating from art-specialized Highschool he completed a diploma in tourism and a few years later became a high school teacher. His 15-year stay in Spain was interrupted by some work-related stays in Germany, during which he worked at his father's company for the conservation of monuments and the restoration of facades in Berlin. David has had many different work experiences. He worked in the hotel industry, also in sales, foreign trade, a gardening center, crafts, translation, teaching and the construction industry. For some years, however, he has specialized in cycling trips with tourist groups to various destinations such as. Italy, France, Portugal, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica and Panama. But what gives him real pleasure is showing the land he has chosen as his home, Almeria.
