Short history

A referee in the second Bundesliga since 1991 refereeing and in the first Bundesliga in 1995.

As referee he took part in European championship for players under 18 and under 16. Oddly enough he started taking charge of matches in the Champions League in 2002 and from then "descended" to the UEFA Cup and for some reason the amount of matches has been decreasing.

In 2004 he was also active in South Korea's K-League.
