1955: Born in Basel, Switzerland.
1978 – 1987: Following school, vocational training, and military service, I founded Z-Productions, a design, event, and equipment company for road shows, dance clubs, and bars. (I still run the company, although on a smaller scale.)
1988: Traveled to Egypt to dive for wrecks. Explored the country’s historical sites to gather ideas for a club with an Ancient Egyptian theme. Extracurricular activity: Got myself locked into the mysterious Pyramid of Khufu for a night to conduct some self-experiments. Just before dawn, I left the pyramid and climbed it for one last, bold experiment.
My activities attracted attention and brought me in contact with an old grave robber, who seemed to know more about the pyramid than any Egyptologist. Ultimately, the Arab even allowed me to look at his family treasure, which included a gruesome relic. I was shocked to see what appeared to be the severed limb of a prehistoric humanoid giant, as they are described in ancient myths, legends, and the Bible. The photos made its way around the world.
1998 – 2018: Following a mysterious clue from the grave robber, I returned to Egypt several times. The findings from my research have been a source of astonishment and disbelief. Among mainstream scientists, I’m considered a crank.
2008 – 2018: The Egypt shock, my research, the exploration trips with Erich von Däniken – Swiss pioneer of the ancient aliens theory, as well as the conversations with H. R. Giger – master of dark surrealism and creator of the monster from the film series ALIEN, inspired me incorporate my insights, theories and fantasies about the „biblical giants“ into a novel.
