I was born 1983 in Han(n)over, 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). Hendrik has a rare genetic disorder, the 5p- syndrome
, which renders our daily life with three kids even more challenging than it would be anyway.
I still love to cycle (though it's now many years ago that I did my most recent longer trips, e.g. in Morocco
and around the Baltic Sea
and welcome any chance to play football, ultimate frisbee or Doppelkopf
