Oliver was born in Cologne / Germany in 1970. He graduated from the German Sports University, Cologne, with a Masters Degree in Physical Exercise and Coaching. Then he was teacher in Physical Education in Switzerland and after he worked as research associate and lecturer at a German University. He quit his job and went traveling and started working as an expert for fitness and sports over a period of 6 years (different countries in Europe, Africa, South America).

He met his Swiss wife Katja in Turkey. Soon after arriving in Mauritius in 2008 they became a family ofthree. Neo, who recently turned seven, is the light of their lives. He likes to live by the philosophy that every day is a new adventure and you must enjoy it as much as possible. His international experiences have been very beneficial to him as he now has knowledge about many countries, people and their respective cultures. It strengthened his attitude "to be openminded and curious, to think positively and listen to your heart".

His biggest impact in his life so far was stepping onto a windsurfboard for the first time, when he was ten. This is clearly visible as he is still involved with wind and Kite surfing through his career today. He is the manager of “AirSwitch Kitesurfing Mauritius”, which provides unique kite coaching and individual solutions in Kite surfing. From beginner to expert; Airswitch meets the needs of all Kite surfers. If you are interested in kite surfing you can get in

Agile is your authentic and professional partner providing superior solutions for health management, Fitness and Personal Training. If you feel your life needs a health boost have a look at His work keeps him fairly busy, but he doesn´t mind this as he has a great passion for it. This is apparent in the way in which Oliver talks about his work, “I think that I am really lucky: business and fun, hobby and work, passion and job – everything is linked”. When Oliver is not working, he likes getting together with friends and enjoying an active and fun lifestyle. He also enjoys spending as much time as possible with his family at the beach, “sharing as many sunny vibes as possible”. This makes Oliver seem like a laid back person, however this is not the case. He likes challenges and believes that, “variety is the spice of life”. It is quite clear, therefore, that Oliver loves every moment of his life ... apart from hectic shopping that he leaves to his wife.

Oliver thoroughly enjoys living in Mauritius and views it as paradise, “I am very lucky; I’m living my dream in Mauritius. I have made fantastic new friends in extraordinary surroundings. Mauritius with its openness, its multicultural environment in a perfect climate – is paradise for me”. Oliver feels that he is a very fortunate and blessed individual – he has a beautiful family, a job he loves, and he lives in what he views to be paradise. However what really makes him fortunate and blessed is the wonderful outlook he has toward life and its challenges. He tackles everyday as it comes and lives every moment of it to the fullest. We are lucky to have him on our beautiful little island.
