Ronald was born in Bowmanville, Ontario in 1968 to a Swiss father and a German mother. My parents immigrated to Canada in the early sixties. I grew up in a very large family, with five brothers and three sisters which had a strong influence on me growing up in a rural part of Canada. We did not have much but my mother taught me that life is what you make it.
After graduation, I took a two-year course for the fine arts at the Okanagan College. I moved to Switzerland in the late 80’s and attended the ceramic school in Bern, Switzerland. I found the program very exciting and demanding. After finishing my education in the field of ceramics, I then pursued a different career direction.
