first of all, I want to introduce myself:
I grew up in Berlin, first in Pankow (a district of Berlin), later in Friedrichshain, and after that I moved back to Pankow.
My first years at school I spent in the Eckertstreet in Friedrichshain, a few years later I changed to the school in the Straßmannstreet, and when we (my family and I) moved to Pankow I enrolled in the school in the Neumannstreet. After all that, I moved once again to another school, where I graduated in 1985. That school was in the Görschstreet/ Pankow.
In the autumn of '85, I started as an apprentice to become an engine assistant, which was in Rostock, at the shipping company DSR. I finished after 2 years.
One year later, I had to join the army. During my time off I worked as an engine assistant on board of a ship. I left the army in 1990.
Until the end of 1990, I worked in my job on a few ships. In '91 I lost my job, but I didn't waste that time, because I learned to become a ship mechanic. The time between the end of my trainee works and the course at the end of the year, I worked at couchette coaches for Mitropa.
From 1992 until 1993, I worked as a ship mechanic for the shipping company Hamburg / Süd.
From September 1993 until October 1996, I studied successfully Schiffsbetriebstechnik in Warnemünde, and I earned the title of an engineer.
Since 1996, I worked as the 2nd engineer on a few ships for NSB.
In January 2004, I was promoted to the position of a Chief Engineer.
