about

Chris was born in Munich. After school, he spent 8 years in the German federal police, where he was trying to become a helicopter pilot. At the same time Chris spent every free moment in the mountains and became a professional snowboarder.

With 27 years he left the police and moved to New York City. There he worked in new media and the advertising business. During his 5 1/2 years in Manhattan, he became a specialist in developing website strategies. He worked for one of the largest US advertising agencies as a CTO and their Senior Technical Director. Later he ran his own consulting and production company.

Chris always played music on his friends parties and became a DJ. First in hip hop, later punk rock and in New York he got into House music and Afrobeat.

In 2002 Chris moved to the beautiful Canary Island Tenerife. He worked as a manager in a tech-travel start-up and djed in the islands best clubs and bars.

1 1/2 years later Chris moved to Moscow/Russia. There he first worked in the Internet-business. Later he started his own advertising agency with his American partner.  In 2008 Chris started to organize events. Some of his parties were among the best in Moscow. Chris did VIP parties, events for some of Russia’s richest oligarchs, but also underground events, like his LBLFCKR series.

Since 2010 Chris is djing deep tech house. Some Afro Berlin flavor. At about the same time Chris also started to appear on TV and produce his own films.

Chris also wrote several blogs. The most known on Germany’s Stern.de. In 2013 he also published his book “Fucking Moskau” (Heyne / Randomhouse).

Halt! Papiere Bitte.

Terrorist search during the gulf war January - February 1991. I am 19 years old in the federal German police in this photo. I had a few strange experiences during that 6 week mission, including a fake bomb on a trainstation platform, which I decided to open and check myself. I got reprimanded for that by my superiors and the bomb squad, which came for nothing. It was obviously a badly done fake, otherwise I wouldn’t have touched that thing. We also had a nice midnight dinner of confiscated meat and alcohol, including champagne, with the Swiss border guards. They invited us, during a boring night shift. Boy, have I been drunk, when my work finished at 6:00 am. Unfortunately, our Lieutenant came to pick us up, instead of the usual driver. He had a van full of totally drunk cadets, but decided to not say anything and never talked about it after. He was a good leader 😉

Needless to say, that we didn’t catch any terrorists. I don’t think the Iraqis sent any, anyway.

Tons of snow in Moscow. We have a real Russian winter this season. I love it, especially since it’s not as cold, as usual. Well -11C (feels -15C) is also quiet usual for this time of the year.

Office view. The days are getting longer again, but the winter is here to stay for another 2 months at least… One has to get used to the neverending darkness and cold.

Moscow fuckin’ City. 😉 

It gets hard here sometimes, but can also be rewarding in others. After 19 years, I can call it home, I guess…

The investment into grow lights shows some results. My various Chilli plants are flowering. The first Chilli is growing already, so there will be a good 2nd winter harvest. And no? I don’t grow Mary J, although my extensive weed growing experience pays off even with Chili’s

After -15C yesterday it’s raining right now. Most drainage is still frozen. Besides of iced sidewalks and falling ice from the roofs you need to watch out not to be splashed, when walking to the office.

I decided to put a time laps on last night when I saw the moon in front of my living room window. I let it run until 18:00 today. So here are 16 hours compressed into 1:33 min 😉 Its nice to see, how the moon sets, its getting day and how the Tets-16 power plant (which gives us electricity, heat and our hot water) in the West of me, releases a lot of steam and humidity into the atmosphere. Later a snow front settles in and it becomes dark again.

Hey? Why did you jump into the bathtub?
Because I am afraid of the fireworks and they say this is the safest spot in an apartment. #smoothfoxterrier

Dogshaming! I went out for some of my last meetings this year and forgot a full bowl of selfmade (delicious) Christmas cookies next to my bed. My dog (#smoothfoxterrier ) Muhackel seemed to have liked them as well. He made a cookie party with Grace in my bed, which is full of cookie pieces now. At least he understands that he misbehaved, as you can see on the photos. Bad boy! Ha ha. I actually understand him. These cookies are really tasty and it was my mistake to leave them in reach. Hope he didn’t have too much belly pain, after eating half of a bowl ;-) Merry Christmas to my #smoothfoxterriers #dogshaming #dogshamingofinstagram

Taking the Metro for the first time, since months. ;-) Usually, I take scooters or taxis these days, or walk. What is reality for millions of Moscovites on a daily basis is a „limited edition“ for me, since COVID-19.
