A Feeling for Beautiful Things

29 years old, after his training in Stuttgart's John Cranko School, he danced for nine years in the Stuttgart Ballet, in the end, as a soloist. At just 29, after his summer vacation in 2003, he spontaneously decided to end his career. Less than three quarters of a year later, he already was the proprietor of a smart haberdashery and accessories shop in the best location of Stuttgart.
