I was born 1983 in Hanover, Germany, where I also spent my childhood and youth.
After finishing school in 2001, I did my one-year civilian service as a carer for the elderly, and spent a couple of months
cycling 10,000 kilometres from Germany to Nepal
In 2008, I married Andrea Langrock
, changing my surname which had been Solecki previously.
We have three children, Johann
(born in 2010), Hendrik
(born in 2012) and Thea
(born in 2017).
I still love to cycle (including longer trips, e.g. in Morocco
and around the Baltic Sea
and welcome any chance to play football or ultimate frisbee.
