Ralf grew up on a small farm in Northern Bavaria, Germany. This unique connection to nature influenced his future decisions. He studied architecture at the TU Munich and also graduated on the topic of "Revilatisation of rural areas" on the example of his home village. Furthermore, his abroad year in Mexico and different professional experiences form his broad interests also outside architecture.
