Er war Polizeireporter in Chicago und reiste für "Max" um die Welt. Aber sein größtes Abenteuer war die Gründung des Verlags Ankerherz.

Hamburg. Wir treffen uns an dem Ort, wo alles begann: in einer Hafenkaschemme, wie sie in Hamburg selten geworden ist. Wo der Blick durchs Fenster erst auf der Elbe endet, wo Fischernetze unter der Decke hängen, die Modelle der „Passat“ und der „Pamir“ einträchtig an den Wänden hängen und der Kaffee in Bechern mit aufgedrucktem Seebären gereicht wird. Wir treffen uns in der Haifischbar an der Großen Elbstraße.
