I was born and raised in Bangalore, India, and moved to Berlin, Germany in 1975. I married Beulla in 1977, and am a father of three children: Hannah, Joanna, and Samuel. From the first week of my arrival, I have been a member of ACB. My tasks have included taking leadership and chairing at all the committees, and being President and Vice President of the church council. In 2019 I was installed as the first deacon of ACB.
