I am best defined by those three words in the intro: Christian Cowboy and Coach. First I am a bible-believing Christian. You can read why this is
so important to me in the section “Jesus”. I am also defined by todays Cowboy Lifestyle. And btw: The Cowboy lifestyle does go hand in hand
with the Christian Lifestyle and there are many Christian Cowboys in the United States. And there are quite a few Cowboy Churches in the USA,
especially in the typical cowboy states. Those churches minister especially to the cowboy culture, their worship is country and some even have
their own rodeo arena for practices or put on their own rodeos But is also common to have a service at professional rodeos and pray before the
events. As a modern day cowboy I have not much in common with the so called “wild west”. You can read more in the section “Cowboy
Lifestyle”. Even though I retired from Bull Riding in 2015 I am still a cowboy because “once a cowboy – always a cowboy”. But after ending my
bull riding career I was drawn more and more towards my other love in sports – football! Besides riding in Rodeos it has been a longtime dream
to be a high school football coach. This dream came true (at least a little bit) by becoming a youth football coach here in Germany (youth
football is the equivalent to high school football over here). The German sports system is very different from the one in the US so I had a dream
and a visionto bring real American football to German teenagers. You can read all about my experiences as a Coach in the section "Football"
However coaching real football is not possible for very long over here for various reasons. So I am planning to return to the rodeo circuit in the
future. Not as a rider but let`s see what God allows me to do…I also like to watch NASCAR sometimes...Music is also big in my life and I love
many forms of Country music (like positiv mainistream country, christian country and Texas / Red dirt country). And of course I love good food,
especially American or Chinese.

Well, since you klicked the „about me“ button let me tell you a little bit about me… I learned early in life to know and love the USA because my
family on my mothers side lives in New Jersey. Soon I developed a love for the southern states and I spend a lot of time in Mississippi until I
discovered the cowboy lifestyle. Naturally I was drawn to typical cowboy states more and more and today I call Oklahoma my “home of choice”.
I love me some good food every now and then...but who does not ?!?. Being a cowboy I love my steak - that is for sure! But I also love many
other types of food: Southern food in general is pretty good, but I also love chinese stuff like fried meat balls and their type of noodles...I guess
you can say I like fried stuff...Speaking of fried stuff...I had the best chicken fried steak ever in Guymon, Oklahoma. So if you are ever in that
area makesure to go to Cactus Jacks Roadhouse and get you one lol
Many people in Germany think that typical American food is Hamburger and Hot Dogs. Well that might be true BUT: There is a lot more to the
USA than just those two dishes...Typical American food is steak (prime USDA beef in all sorts of flavors), turkey, country ham, fried chicken and
ofcourse Louisiana stuff...People who only know Hamburger and Hot Dogs are missing out on much better American Stuff!!! Don`t believe me?
You should come to one of my parties! My friends and I know how to cook some good American stuff lol...
Christian Cowboy and Football Coach
Music is also a big part of my life! As a cowboy my favorite music is - of course - country music. I listen mostly to positive mainstream country
and Christian country. I have been listening to Texas and Red Dirt country lately too though! And just with the cowboy lifestyle: Country
music is not what many European think it is, for more read my section "Cowboy Life". I do not have a favorite singer because there are a lot of
great ones out there but usually songs by Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Craig Morgan, John Steed, Chris LeDoux, George Strait, Kenny
Chesney and Aaron Watson find their way onto my PC... The best concert I ever saw was without a doubt Kenny Chesney in Cheyenne 2009.
The show was great and everybody in attendance sang along every to single song! It was just amazing! You`ll find more information about
