I have been allowed to hypnotize people for almost 40 years and hypnosis and teaching is my passion:
After studying political science at Emory University in Atlanta, USA and 2 years of military service as an officer in the Swiss Army, I worked for many years at the Mercedes-Benz Group in global purchasing in management positions. I grew up in Switzerland, Brazil and the USA, among other countries, and speak 5 languages fluently.
The legendary Gerald F. Kein chose me as his handpicked successor and I am the owner of OMNI Hypnosis International since 2015. I have had the privilege of training and educating thousands and am a proven expert in hypnosis & hypnotherapy. I am also the founder and driver of the OMNI HypnoScience® project, which for the first time in the long history of hypnosis succeeded in scientifically proving the state of hypnosis using imaging techniques. Quality over quantity – this is also the reason why the company, the training and our therapy process is ISO 9001 certified since 2015.
I let my students share my enthusiasm and passion for hypnosis. People say I am a charismatic, humorous, entertaining and competent instructor who knows how to inspire his students and makes every class an experience. It is the success of my students that I want to be measured by. Period!
My motto: Passion for a Healthy Mind!
I was born in 1965, am married and live in Volketswil, near Zurich. My hobbies include handball, tennis, friends, motorsports and traveling. My passion, however, is hypnosis and passing on my knowledge.
